I agree that we should keep Thunderbird release builds focused at end
users and not add unnecessary stuff there.
However, I think it would be a good idea to have a separate "dev" build
for extension developers, which includes mozmill, DOMI and lots of other
niceness for extension developers and testers. The normal build process
would spit it out automatically.
BTW: I just noticed that we have localized nightly builds (didn't know
about that). Very nice!
Very strange for me to see Thunderbird in German :)
