MuteThread 0.1 add-on

  I've created version 0.1 of an add-on that exposes the "ignore 
(sub-)thread" functionality to email, using the same UX as currently 
works in newsgroups.

Bryan has suggested a "Muted Threads" folder analogous to the "Junk" 
folder to avoid inadvertently losing threads with mistaken keypresses, 
which sounds like a good idea to me.  Since that's not yet implemented, 
and because I don't yet have updates set up, I'm not yet advertising 
this add-on broadly.

Recent discussion here suggests that folks on this list might be 
interested in using it in spite of those warts, so I'm starting by 
talking about it here.

So far, I've tested on Thunderbird 3.1.2.  It can be found at 
<>.  If you're interested in poking at the 
source, it's at <>.  I'd expect it 
to be easy to modify to make watching threads work for email as well.
