Remove more project ideas, bump torbutton for thunderbird priority

Using Webmail is cumbersome, so many people ask how to torify their
Thunderbird. We don't have a Torbutton-like app available, but that
would be great. Thus the priority isn't low.

Removed ideas:

 - tuneup Tor: The entry misrepresents the current state, and also
   is pretty much done, afaict.

 - Intermediate level network device driver: Since Martin pretty
   much abandoned Tor, we don't have a good mentor for the project.
   Also, torvm would be the main benefactor here, and that depends
   on Martin, too.
