Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name 'Thunderbird' for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while."

100% agree. The two names are so generic and similar that i KNOW I will have a hard time differentiating them.
For the record: I'm not fond of the new names. What do "fire", "thunder" and "birds" have to do with browsing and e-mailing? It's also so uninspired.
