Firefox 4 cleaned up the traditional menubar quite a bit by hiding
redundant menu items when the user invokes the menu using the mouse.
Candidates for Thunderbird are:
File - New Message/Event/Task
File - Close
File - Get New Messages
Edit - Delete Message
Message - New Message
Message - Reply/to all/to List
Message - Forward
Message - Tag
Message - Archive
Tools - Address Book
Mouse users will prefer the corresponding toolbar buttons; keyboard
users still see those items and their keyboard shortcuts.
The Firefox bugs were bug 588011 and bug 626825.

We should also consider tabs on top, in the titlebar, like Firefox.
