It's been a long time coming (about a decade!) but today was the day
we could finally remove the last pieces of the RDF [1] usage from the
Thunderbird code base. The whole rdf folder was sent to bit heaven
freeing up around half a megabyte in one commit. [2] 




What does it mean? Less code to maintain, and code that's easier to
work with and understand. Folder lookup was one of the last pieces
that depended on it, and folders is really used all over the place.
More modern ways of looking up messages and storing messages can now
be explored.



Thanks to Ben Campbell for pushing it over the finishing line!
