As the person who originally ported Test Pilot to Thunderbird, I must say
I'm pretty happy with this outcome. I had always wanted Test Pilot to
remain on beta and aurora only (at least until it got more established),
and given that it hasn't gotten much use, I won't be too sad to see it go
away entirely.
