Unfortunately its not quite that simple.

hulahop hasn't and won't be converted to xulrunner 4/5/6/7/8 and hence
it won't run even if it was installed. See threads regarding gtk3,
webkit and Browse

The gnome-python2-evince are dead upstream because
gnome-python2-evince/pygtk2 is built against gtk2 and evince is built
against gtk3 and hence won't work. The required bits for the
gobject-introspection support in evince are now in this new build so
hopefully soon we'll see an updated Read that has been converted to
the new gtk3 sugar-toolkit.
