I heard that Mozilla is intending to apply for GSoC 2017, so I'm here 
with a proposal: during GSoC 2017 I want to work on integrating 
Thunderbird with GNOME/Ubuntu on-line accounts. What do you think of it? 
As for me, I think this should be a huge benefit for Thunderbird UX, 
because you'd have to login only once to use all the applications, 
related to the on-line account registered in the system.

Maybe a layer for compatibility of this feature with plug-ins should 
also be fine, but I think that security of such solution is a subject 
for further discussion.

This is only a draft and my very first attempt to contribute to a large 
open-source project, but I'm hoping to receive a community's feedback :)
