Good question, the MPL really hasn't served Thunderbird very well, with 
Postbox being the prime example, resulting in zero win for the base 
project. This would not be possible with GPL.

You could also consider a dual licensing of GPL + commercial licensing 
for proprietary software. (Like MySQL, Stanford CoreNLP etc.)
