It's the new home of the service, yes, living in a new location.

Yes, initially, the idea was to use live.momo.com for *all* backed-in
URLs in the Thunderbird product.

In hindsight, using thunderbird.net instead of the name of a corporation
would have been a better idea, since momo doesn't even exist anymore ;-(

It's going to stick around forever, as we can't break old clients that
refer to it.
