Sounds like a good strategy.

Btw, about hulahop and pyxpcom, Micah Gersten told me at the UDS that
they would love to have pyxpcom working on Ubuntu but that they need
first to take care of some infrastructure issues.

In a few weeks, it may be possible to package hulahop for Maverick and
backport it to an older release.

But of course, a PPA might be good enough for the moment.
