The one thing that I would encourage a motivated developer to play with
soon would be HTML-based replacements for the tree widget. Both Postbox
and the looming Chinese Thunderbird fork have multi-line treeview as a
feature, and Mozilla has made it clear that we must do this in HTML if
we want it. It is a critical feature that we could benefit from in the
sort run, regardless of the issues of wholescale replacement of XUL.
