In my opinion, speaking in terms of what's going to make the biggest
positive visible and practical impact for Thunderbird, I'd switch 1 and
3 around. Users can if they wish work through existing documentation for
Gmail+Thunderbird setup – it's all there, from Mozilla, Google and the
blogosphere. It's less easy to document around what has been for the
longest time a fundamentally pretty awful contacts/address book experience.
