The consensus (and normal advice) in the MozillaZine forums is to 
uninstall TestPilot because it degrades performance. Some users 
uninstall it because they don't trust that it only reports what it is 
supposed to (due to bugs). It also requires Thunderbird 8.0 or later 
which means you'd disenfranchise all users that stuck with 3.1.* due to 
the chaos caused by the "rapid development process".
