Great. I'm all in favor of using the new version and figure out where
we should work for the future versions of TB. I think we should work out
what test we would like to run before tring to implement a new version
I'm thinking about the following things that I have alwas wanted to know :
* % of people using NNTP
* % of imap account vs pop
* % of users using RSS
* # of accounts average
Then we can get into more specifics , but having these fgures woul help
us cncentrate on what our suers use.
