I disagree. It being in the repository rather implies that it meets
Fedora's packaging standards, which it very clearly and egregiously does
not. Being in a third party repo makes it clear that it does not.

Given that it's not a particularly vital package, since we have the
somewhat more 'correct' Firefox, I don't think it's necessary to suspend
our packaging standards to accept this kind of crappy code into Fedora.
