Umm... we do use OOo-bin already. We can't really switch to FF-bin,
though we can ship it (size dependending), since FF is a dependency of a
couple other things we ship. Evolution is *not* a large package, and
doesn't take long to compile, nor is there a -bin version. We can
definitely switch to TB-bin, though.
