I like the idea of having Thunderbird in KDE. It shows that we are an open 
community and welcoming towards "outside" projects and of course it would be 
also a good PR for both sides.

From KDE PIM point of view (but speaking just for myself, not for the team) I 
don't see any conflicts there. We don't have much to share with them (probably 
except for hate of obsolete email protocols), but there are certainly things 
we can learn from each other. As was mentioned elsewhere already, having 
Thunderbird in KDE can only foster (friendly) competition between the email 
clients, which I think would be much welcomed and can help push both projects
