For some old,bad packages, I had to compromise, and not register them
in the collision database. Given non-purity of existing data, we have
two tables; a no-limits one(which the web references for searches),
and a collisions one.

I'll accept the libnspr4 packages for filename purposes, if CSWmozilla
is cleaned up.

The only other collision is "sunbird", It is obsolete.
  "We recommend upgrading to Thunderbird 3 and Lightning 1.0 beta2."

If someone packaged up lightning, i would be very happy to drop our
sunbird package.
I'd like to just drop it anyway, but since we dont have any vaguely
comparable functionality in another package, I am reluctant to do so.
