For enterprises, we're aware that this may be difficult for them, and 
we're willing to chat about it

Just under a year ago, Dan Mosedale put a document together 
<> that aimed to 
help the community see where the Thunderbird product is going. In that 
document for the market, we stated:

"Thunderbird will focus on the individual user and Small Office / Home 
Office (SOHO) market segments."

I believe we haven't affected that focus with moving to rapid releases.
