And they should make sure that the uninstaller of one does not erase the Enigmail copy which is still used by the other.

There are no 2 plug-ins nor will there ever be, therefore no danger of interference. The p≡p and Enigmail teams are working closely together to provide one better product for the TB and crypto community - we strongly believe only by working together we will make a difference and hence we at p≡p are delighted to provide our engine to the next version of Enigmail, named Enigmail/pEp.

I hope my answer brings more clarity.
