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.
