I would like to add that I had a couple of ideas on how to improve the
"Filelink" API while I was writing this extension (and also as an user).

If some of you could direct me to an interested Thunderbird developer I
would gladly share my ideas and quirks I had during the development (I
don't have enough time to participate actively in another project, so I
never tried to discuss in the official mailing lists).

I believe, after looking at the DropBox/YouSendIt/Box (and other random
ones on github) filelink providers in the beginning, this is one of the
cleanliest/simplest implementations, talling at ~300 lines and still
implementing all the required functionalities (I really wished I had
something like this before I started to write).
