I know this has been talked about before, but maybe one thing would be 
to create some kind of bug bounty system. As was noted in the prior 
discussion, there are existing systems out there that could be used, so 
this wouldn't have to be a massive project in and of itself. This would 
provide a potentially real monetary incentive that may attract some 
talented coders that otherwise may not have given Thunderbird a second look.
