I think we should define a list of packages that should be always let through,
according to mdv policy for a couple years: firefox, xulrunners,
are used to be updated to new versions in order to fix security bugs.

however, we may've to revise this since it looks like mozilla makes push more
than fixes in stable updates (unless I misunderstood and they'll only release
really quite a lot more agressively with their new nightly/aurora/beta/released
