To answer a question I've gotten twice now:

The problem with linking Seamonkey's nss is not whether it works
right now -- it does -- it's whether it will work after the next
Seamonkey update.  Recall that the reason mozilla-nss was added to
11.0 was due to the fact that the Seamonkey-1.0.8 update broke gaim.

Version: GnuPG v2.0.3 (GNU/Linux)
