I want to have them both by default. The trick to acceptance is usually
that it is not forces and goes slowly but stable. If we take away
Thunderbird the step from windows to Linux would be more difficult that
is not a good thing (bug nr 1). So keep Thunderbird in it. However I am
in favor of a alternative of Thunderbird because I don't stand behind
the technic used for it, GTK is much better. But now I need all the
functionality of Thunderbird to just be able to work with it. It it
already a fight between evolution and Thunderbird.

So to conclude don't remove Thunderbird, add Claws Mail. Let it improve
and be accepted then there may be a option to remove Thunderbird.
