Well, anything is a start... but IMHO whilst Mozilla is a fair browser,
and Gecko is a fair rendering engine... neither of them are up to coping
with the stress of providing IE-compatible integration.

Also upstream tracking of Gecko would be very much impossible, and there
is ZERO chance that IE'isms would ever make it into upstream anyway...
KHTML has a far better chance in that respect :)

Also Geckos JavaScript engine is very so-so with a lot of the MS-formatted
JS I've tried feeding it :(
