I was thinking bunching Backup / Archiving / Import / Export together myself, but it 
is a very wordy title. Do we even have a sufficient number of Backup or Archiving 
Addons? If somebody could come up with some examples, it might clear up this matter. 
As regards Import / Export (or maybe we could call it interfacing?) is it even worth 
adding this as category?

My other question is, are we missing any category ? - I tried to think of everything, 
but I am not perfect ;)

The last question is whether we should add IM/chat back to the "must have" list? I 
know there aren't many extensions right now. In my opinion it would be good for 
Thunderbird Innovation and for the users if we attract some attention in this area; it 
might also give the Add-On authors some motivation to write Add-Ons in this particular
