Why was Manually sort folders created?
I believe Thunderbird 3 has the potential to become a real, innovative, powerful desktop email client ; I also think some people will always prefer using a real desktop email client that's integrated into the system rather than using webmails. However, some seemingly trivial features are missing in Thunderbird 3, and the team currently does not have the manpower to implement them. This is where I come in :-).
What's next for Manually sort folders
I will make sure this add-on keeps working with newer versions of Thunderbird.
I have some long-standing user requests in my TODO list: being able to hide local folders, being able to further customize the folder pane... The UI also needs to be cleaned up, it's sometimes not very intuitive. Some of these features will gradually make it into the development version, check it out in the meanwhile. I'm still open to bug reports or feature requests!

Who is Jonathan Protzenko?
I maintain a couple of extensions to Thunderbird. Do not hesitate to contact me by email for ideas, bug reports, features, suggestions, patches, etc.
In real life, I'm a computer science student in Paris. I develop add-ons as a leisure, on my spare time. I also wrote a book on XUL in a previous life but due to studies I haven't been able to develop add-ons until recently, which is why I just started to get involved again with Mozilla.
Oh and by the way, I'm French :).
