Question: With this being planned, do we need to set up our own extension review 
board? I would be interested in reviewing /mail specific extensions exclusively/. But 
they are kind of hard to find on AMO Editor site. What about "hybrid" addons that 
support both Firefox + Thunderbird? They are usually problematic (may not even add any 
functionality for Tb) and often don't really contribute much to Tb as a mail client.
