So, what am I saying? You don't NEED to add something useless
like Outlook or Evolution to LO. You just have to allow
Thunderbird to connect to it, and people can make their own
choice as to whether they want all the other bells and whistles.
Therefore, no increase in size due to bundling but the advantage
that those that WANT the extras can have them without difficulty

I agree, an integration add-on for Thunderbird (and any other
e-mail clients or contact managers with an add-on architecture)
would be a far better use of resources. Simply making contacts
available to LibreOffice would do wonders for mail-merge luck
functionality (for the life of me I can't think of any other
functionalities one would require of an outlook clone).

besides email people want a calendar as well as a to do list as well
functionality wise, which Thunderbird seems to lack.

Only if you fail to discover the excellent
if-not-still-a-little-lacking-in-functionality Lightning extension...

Personally, I couldn't use Thunderbird (or Firefox) in its default naked
state. I currently have 35+ extensions in TBird, and 51 for Firefox. And
now there are 4 or 5 that I must have in LibO...

Extensibility is one of the hallmarks of FLOSS, and one of the main
reasons I love it...
