Firefox breaks (frequently!) when "icu" is updated. Notwithstanding that
it's a repository package and thusly gets rebuilt on time, does that
mean that it's proper package name should be "icu-firefox" because it
has a binary dependency on the icu package?
Maybe it should even be renamed to

Should pacman be renamed to curl-libarchive-pacman?

Should bash be renamed to readline-bash?

No, that would be silly.
