But why only for Thunderbird?

Why not make an open container (or just modularize the existing one with a
well defined interface) to will allow any application to use the resources
(e.g. dictionaries) and have full integration with all LO resources?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the main bone of contention with
regards to integrating a third-party e-mail client the flow of data
*from* the client, *to* the office suite. If that is the case, surely
there is a *need* develop an add-on for each e-mail client.

I can't imagine there being a need to share resources with an e-mail
client (certainly Thunderbird) as they (as stand-alone products) strive
to be feature complete. That being said don't both Thunderbird and LibO
use hunspell? If so, would it not already be a simple matter to share
dictionaries? For example a system-wide hunspell dictionary.

For the record I'm not in favour of LibO wasting resources on developing
their own PIM or e-mail client. There are plenty of alternatives out
there, and LibO should work on integration with them (I assume such
would represent a lot less work compared with a brand new or forked PIM).

"We Americans claim to be a peace-loving people. We hate bloodshed; we
are opposed to violence. Yet we go into spasms of joy over the
possibility of projecting dynamite bombs from flying machines upon
helpless citizens. We are ready to hang, electrocute, or lynch anyone,
who, from economic necessity, will risk his own life in the attempt upon
that of some industrial magnate. Yet our hearts swell with pride at the
thought that America is becoming the most powerful nation on earth, and
that she will eventually plant her iron foot on the necks of all other
nations. Such is the logic of patriotism."
