#58 Decouple browser from mail/news?

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm pretty new to Mozilla (using nightlies under Linux).

What is the rationale for tying the browser and mail/news so closely? It seems that if they were separate projects each could proceed at its own pace. Also, I think the functions of browsing, mail, and news are all distinct.

I like the browser quite a bit, but after suffering with the performance and feature quirks of the mail/news part, I switched to PAN. I have yet to find a mail program that does what I like.
