How about this:
1. We define how the API / IDL for a JS-based account implementation
should look like, independent of any implementation
2. You implement that API using "SkinkGlue"
3. "SkinkGlue is included in Thunderbird
4. Once we have a better approach, that replaces SkinkGlue, but the
JS account implementations don't notice the change.
Do you (all) think 1 and 4 are possible?
I don't think having this in Thunderbird source tree, but not enabled in
main TB builds, is very useful.
