Mass moving lower-priority bugs to 0.9.6 (with Blake's pre-consent) to make room
for remaining 0.9.4/eMojo bugs and MachV planning, performance and feature work.
 If anyone disagrees with the new target, please let me know.

Blake,

I'm presuming that the page that you're referring to is the "What's New" in
Netscape page for Netscape and the Mozilla equivalent for Mozilla?

For business reasons (the What's new page is not monetized/no ads and doesn't
recirculate traffic to Netscape.com as well), I don't think we should present
this option for Netscape users.  They can get back to this page via the help
menu and set it to their homepage if they really want to, but I don't think we
should encourage it.  Obviously Mozilla can pursue this if they think their
users would find it valuable.

I think in general it would be a worthwhile feature for Mozilla's distributors
(Mozilla's target audience).
