as for static linking, you can with MPL (we have not done anything in the build system to support this in a sane way, but patches welcome), but be aware that there is LGPL dependencies as well, so you need to think of this when doing static linking and how that effects your distribution requirements.  For the MPL code, linking shouldn't be an issue.
