Situation A, we rebrand to Iceweasel:
We don't need or want to create a 3rd Iceweasel version (Debian+GNU+gNS)

Situation B, we use the one from Debian:
We have to backport from Debian Sid or Debian Etch, and maintain
(another) fairly complex package from outside the distribution.

Situation C, we use GNU/Iceweasel:
We not only have to maintain an external package, but we also have to
package it. *We* have to maintain it, for security an updates, and *we*
have to do all the work if something breaks it.
