Chris Coulson from Canonical is hoping to eventually get these
extensions merged into Gecko/Thunderbird - but he acknowledges that
we've missed the 3.3 deadline.  Until we manage to integrate, we'll
continue to include the features as extensions via the build mechanism
that Mark mentioned.

That appears to be the current plan for the Thunderbird+Unity work.
