Mozilla feature request response time

Eddy has been exposing some of the long standing feature requests for Mozilla. They have a huge record or such requests. My favourites:

And these requests are only a small subset…

On the other hand, I’m amazed the 1.8.1 branch (the one for Firefox 2.0) is ABI compatible with 1.8.0 (Firefox 1.5). I’m currently running epiphany with a pre-release of libxul (coming soon in sid), and it works flawlessly (so far), without rebuilding epiphany.
I must say I’m impressed, especially when I look back at how 1.7.x releases were.

13256278887989457651018865901401704613 is a prime.
13256278887989457651018865901401704671 is the following prime.
Between them exists a (allegedly) forbidden number. If you don’t know how to find it it’s 27 more than the first and 31 less than the second. Oops.
Edit: Or you could multiply the following primes: 2, 5, 19, 12043, 216493, and 836256503069278983442067 and then multiply by 32.
