I'm not handling the firebird browser stuff, so I can't address all of
your concerns, but technically speaking, there would be no name
collision in portage. Firebird the database is dev-db/firebird.
Firebird the browser would be net-www/firebird, net-www/firebird-bin,
etc. I don't know which one would be chosen if you type "emerge
firebird". To be sure to get the right package, you'd have to specify
the category on the emerge commandline too ("emerge
net-www/firebird"). Naming it MozillaFirebird would be a violation of
Gentoo's development policy because of the capitalization
(mozillafirebird or mozilla-firebird would be ok).
