[Bug 1797945] Re: Lightning incompatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1

When I tried installing  xul-ext-lightning , I got blocked, whether via
the Synaptic Package manager or Software Center or using  apt from the
command-line. The essence of the error message was:

xul-ext-lightning: Depends: thunderbird (= 1:38.6.0+build1-0ubuntu1) but
1:60.2.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.4 is to be installed

I think I noticed that 1:38.6.0 was the version number of xul-ext-
lightning; maybe somehow that got copied over into some field that
describes the version of Thunderbird? I don't know, but in any case,
that did not work for me.

I followed  Jeffery To (jefferyto)'s advice in #12, #15 and #21 (which
are repeated in  #28 and #32 (except step 5 is not as explicit as
Jeffery's) and, I'm relieved to say, that worked.

This is really a dreadfully convoluted way to handle the matter. I'm
sure only a very persistent few will find it, and the rest will be
bemoaning loss of important functionality.

So, yes, please, let's get this to be part of the automatic upgrade.
