First I wanna thank Sukhbir for providing this really detailed workplan
and his commitment to giving Tor users a safer way to email and chat.

I also think this is a really cool brainstorm and I agree with Isa and
George about uniting Tor's products around common themes.

I also want to flag that the email part of Sukhbir's original idea is a
really essential component. Email is used way more than chat. Popular
email providers, like gmail, don't work very well in Tor Browser (they
work just fine in Thunderbird). The filesharing extension would solve
some of the needs people have with email, but not all. I don't know how
to reconcile this, just acknowledging that it remains a problem.
