UX Priorities.

All of the below suggestions are great. I might add a few twists here 
and there:

Quick wins:
- Make Opensearch twitter aware 

- Improve search :
     - Unify filter & search
     - merge email & IM (possibly attachment) results  and make them 
visually distinctive
- Filelink: support FTP/S, WebDAV

- Web app in Thunderbird: See WebApp Tabs for a _great_ inspiration
- Leverage WebRTC to handle audio/video calls through VoIP, (Skype ?), 
IM channels
