What I never understood about those corporate users willing to pay for 
Thunderbird licence is why they didn't create something along the lines 
which would employ Thunderbird Dev and would fix the issues. Currently 
the issue seems that integrator will patch Tb for some usage but won't 
upstream them; I think we should try to leverage upstreaming in order to 
have everyone benefit from various company paying various integrators to 
patch TB for their needs. How can we achieve that I have no clue - ideas
