It's funny - one of Thunderbirds strengths - customizability via Addons
- is also the source of a minor irritation for me, since I customize so
heavily. I'd love to not have to install dozens of extensions just to
get the feature set/UI customization I want/need, so the more extensions
that are promoted to core code the better (and it seems like it would
make managing the code easier, but since I'm not a dev, maybe I'm wrong)...
It also seems to me that an Addon developer would have more incentive to
innovate if Addons were treated more like they were originally intended
- as a testing ground for new features that would be included in the
core code once they were fully baked and proven, so hopefully this would
include an official path for an Add-On to take from an Add-On to being
accepted into the core code...
