I do it with:

#threadTree > treechildren::-moz-tree-row(even) {
  background-color: -moz-oddtreerow;

This leaves the even-numbered rows as grey, rather than the odd-numbered
ones as was the default in versions before Thunderbird dropped the zebra
striping, but the effect is much the same.

If memory serves, the reason I did it this way is that sticking with
recoloring the even rows leads to needing to override various other
colors (text highlighting with message tags, for example), in ways that
quickly get unwieldy.
