Gecko versions for future Thunderbird releases, and impending Gecko 17

Mark is no doubt working on the proposed outline for handling Gecko in 
the upcoming new era. But given that we haven't seen it yet I'm slightly 
concerned about how quickly 17 is coming up, and what it might mean for 
ESR 17 and possibly "normal" thunderbird releases.

Are there any serious issues we need to see fixed for Gecko 17? Or need 
between 17 and 24 (the next ESR iirc)?  Especially if they might be hard 
to incorporate into thunderbird even if we use our own long lived branch 
of Gecko?

thunderbird, excluding crashes -
