It sounds like you're proposing to ship it as part of Thunderbird
proper? This would also have the advantage of making it easier for
add-on authors to do automated tests. It would be interesting to
understand what the costs of that would be.
An less win-like alternative for Windows builders is that I got the
impression a while back that Ted would be amenable to including it in
the moztools package.
I suspect it would be worth quick discussions with ctalbert and atul to
undertand current thinking and experience here.
