As much as I love bringing suiterunner forward, I think it probably
would be better for most people to wait until official trunk is switched
over to it and real nightlies instead of experimental tinderbox builds
are created from it. That code is still not very usable and is expected
to break in strange way, additionally the migration to toolkit isn't yet
complete, and some important pieces of UI (e.g. tabbrowser) are not yet
what we want to have in any offical even nightly builds - so if people
migrate their extensions to integrate with e.g. the Firefox tabbrowser
widget we have in there, they'll probably break when we turn back to our
own tabbrowser again. Don't take anything you see in there for granted
yet, there's a reason why this is no default configuration yet...
That said, of course the configuration currently internally codenamed
"suiterunner" (a.k.a. "toolkit-based SeaMonkey", it's NO real XULRunner
app yet) is what will build the future of the suite. And yes, it still
has many rough edges, and we would be glad about any help we can get in
making it actually work...
