	The first line of */prj/build.lst lists dependencies for a module:

$ grep  MOZ:moz */prj/build.lst
connectivity/prj/build.lst:cn  connectivity    :    shell  l10n comphelper MOZ:moz svl UNIXODBC:unixODBC unoil javaunohelper HSQLDB:hsqldb qadevOOo officecfg NSS:nss NULL
libxmlsec/prj/build.lst:ls  libxmlsec   : stlport soltools LIBXML2:libxml2 MOZ:moz NULL
xmlsecurity/prj/build.lst:xs    xmlsecurity     :    l10n xmloff unotools offapi unoil svx MOZ:moz LIBXMLSEC:libxmlsec NSS:nss NULL

	Which in laymans terms means - we use it for connectivity (moz
adressbook I guess), and xml security foo - AFAIR the cert management
stuff in moz really needs pushing down to NSS, or splitting out.

	Clearly, we could take a big knife to Mozilla to pare out the vast
majority of it that we do not need, and keep those two - it would be
even more wonderful to get that split out up-stream.

	Could you help hack on that ?
