I am busy at the moment, plus doing this will
mean I have to suspend the updates I was working

I think I will start next week. I will only move
Category-B code and I will disable it from the
buildbots too: it's rather inconvenient to have
the buildbot depend on downloading extra tarballs.

This is admittedly a stop gap solution to comply
better with the Apache policies, the real fix would
be to work collectively on replacing the code that
can be replaced:

rhino --> Google V8
nss   --> openssl
Seamonkey --> Mulberry library

but that doesn't seem to be a priority for 4.0 :( .
