+Thunderbird Standard Library
+============================
+
+The goal of this project is to provide a nice set of wrappers to get started
+quickly when developing a Thunderbird addon. The [initial
+thread](http://groups.google.com/group/tb-planning/browse_thread/thread/4409b6705497b2d0)
+on Google groups details the ideas.
+
+The following areas should be covered by this library:
+
+* sending a message, possibly in HTML,
+* doing various things with messages, including marking them as read, archiving
+ them, deleting them, getting the associated tags...
+* wrappers for commong address book actions, such as quickly saving an email
+ address in some address book,
+* various util functions: escaping text for HTML insertion, accessing the user's
+ identities...
+
+Gloda, `MailUtils.jsm`, `GlodaUtils.js` already provide useful functions. The
+goal is not to replace these, but rather to fill in the gaps. These functions
+are used by the "Thunderbird Conversations" and "Compose in a tab" extensions.
