More cool checkins

Three new super cool features has just landed. But remember it's not gonna be included in Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird 1.5.

- Allow external source viewer/editor
A lot of people have been requsting this. Finally it has landed.

- Improve the alert notification for new mail
Now the subject and message text is shown in the new message alert. Check the screenshot

- Add a way to generate UUIDs
Would be nice if xpcom provided a way to programmatically generate UUIDs

With 27 bugs still to be fixed before Thunderbird 1.5 ( ), I really can't understand the lead devs finding time to implement improvements to the notification of new mail?

If we all waited for all the bugs to be fixed before anything is released just because one user demands it, there would never be any releases.

I'm not demanding anything :)

And I now they can't fix every bug before they release. But the 27 bugs i refer to, are the bugs targeted for the 1.5 release.

I'm not talking about all the open 2788 bugs in bugzilla for Thunderbird.

The first one will be nice and the second one could be nice, but the third one? Making UUIDs more easily generable is a laudable goal, but I can't honestly see a reason to add a couple KB or so to the build to do so. I think better documentation of the ways to create UUIDs would be a far easier and far better way to do this, assuming the appropriate amount of randomness is available inside the XPCOM environment (which might not be true if my quick scan of Components.classes and Components.interfaces was accurate).
