"I also think maybe a combined Firebird and Thunderbird installer would be a good idea - espeically if the much touted 'GRE' ever lifts off."

Well the GRE is already here, it is used by Mozilla (seamonkey) and Netscape 7.1, in fact Netscape 7.1 and Mozilla 1.4 could share the same GRE.

Therefore once the installer is ready then hopefully Firebird will use the GRE too.

and for all those people who think that an installer will be the end of their beloved zip files then remember that Mozilla is still installable via a zip file, it's just the default linked to on the webpage is the installer.
