Then we're in trouble. We'd have to maintain the code base ourselves, 
and that can be done with a team of 10-20 people, especially not 
regarding security fixes.

It's been considered to move Thunderbird onto a different platform, 
that's why the team is working on removing reliance on Mozilla-specific 
technologies. So if the platform dies, we'd have to find another one.

That said, as a participant of 2020's "All Hands" meeting in Berlin, I 
don't have the impression that the platform will die any day soon :-)
