Actually, Alexendre agreed to the patch *because* it sets the version when
Gecko is installed. This allows people to still install native IE if they
wish, and allows apps that need native IE to be able to have it, by
installing IE before Gecko. Alexendre wasn't willing to have the version
always set because some apps may need native IE, and because some people may
want native IE.
However, setting the version when installing Gecko allows apps that need to
detect IE by its version, to be able to do so.
