I agree that we should have a TU-maintained build of chrome/chromium,
but as Ionut pointed out the current build process is a little
ridiculous. Once it has stabilized and matured a little bit more I will
be happy to maintain it. My wife uses it religiously so I have a good
incentive to keep it clean and current. :P
