          talked about leveraging Firefox Sync in the past to
          synchronize settings across TB instances, and we had at one
          point a provisional OK from the Sync team so long as we're not
          storing oodles of information like local messages. At the time
          I last recalled talking with them, they were telling us "hold
          off, we're completely rewriting the thing in the next few
          months" (yet another example of the underestimation of rewrite
          complexity). Since then, I did hear a story from the SeaMonkey
          folks that the Sync people were moving goalposts to reject
          being usable for SeaMonkey, and, given the confused Mozilla
          policy with respect to Thunderbird, it's unclear if we could
          leverage that service still. <br>

        Actually, from all I know, the Sync rewrite was done, it's now
        based on Firefox Accounts for logging in, and they said that
        SeaMonkey is free to use Sync in its current state a while ago -
        there is just nobody on the SeaMonkey side that would have
        ported the new code yet. <br>
        From all I hear, it's a pretty sane and nice system at this time
        for whoever actually has code for using it. <br>

      Sounds great - is there an API or recommended XPCOM interface that
      can be leveraged by us Addons developers? I would love to
      introduce Tabs / Filters synchronisation with my Addons as I am
      often asked for this feature. It's an ideal candidate for sync as
      the amount of data is relatively small.<br>
