i think the only package in there worth keeping around would be
Thunderbird. It clearly needs an update, but i feel thats the package
with the highest demand. (Right after Rust ;) )

I also think that thunderbird might be nice to have. However, nobody
has bothered actually doing anything about it for 2 years and I think
to make it build you would likely need to start over from scratch.

So I think we can just remove it.

you are right. Starting from scratch or using the Firefox package as a
starting point are good choices. Because they are very smilar.
