The long term plan is to migrate the code to web technologies."
Yuk. I'm using Thunderbird expressly because it is not a stupid web
front end to my email. I have absolutely no desire to give all my emails
to a Mozilla server and be stuck using a crappy web interface inside a
web browser - it will never be as fast and flexible as what we have now.
Forget addOns, for one. First Web Extensions with limited permissions,
and now this...
There is no thought of servers - Thunderbird doesn't provide servers.
Also, web technology <> web front end.
