I've already thought about this a few times though I haven't used it
mayself so far.
I have a big problem with google's way violating users privacy. That's the
reason I'd rather like to see us packaging Iron:
Another major issue I see is the included 3rd branch of webkit. Right we
package webkit-gtk and Qt ships it's own webkit. It would be stupid to
build another browser inclusing its own static webkit branch.
And there's one more major issue: Google calls their software open source.
But the development process is happing behind closed doors.
For now: -1 from me for any Google applications in our official repos. But
I can imagine to provide Iron packaged in the community repo.
