Great read, and the comments were interesting as well.
Edit: Oh, I'm sorry, I was talking about the article linked by craigevil.
As far as the issue is concerned, the solution was really so simple -- just fork Mozilla Firefox as they ultimately did (just as wodim has forked cdrecord) and leave everyone happy.
Unfortunately, both Debian and Mozilla being such huge entities, it was inevitable that there would be some ego clashes...
