Re: Weekly SoC report (Thunderbird backend)

If I understand correctly, the Google Desktop has taken the route of using an extension to access and index Thunderbird Mail.

F.y.i, their implementation is unusable for many (all?) users: Thunderbird ends up hogging up system resources - you need to disable Google indexing if you have Thunderbird open.

Relevant threads:

Titles include:

* Crazy Memory Usage
* Google Desktop + Thunderbird = Slow
* Thank you / Thunderbird slugishness

Quoting from one:

"Doing anything with Thunderbird, even after it's fully indexed, is
painfully slow.  Opening a message can push the processor to 100%.
Downloading new mail takes a very long time, and then the system chugs
for a couple of minutes after the downloads are done."

This has been my experience as well.
