Sooner or later, we'll want to be rid of XUL trees, either because they're being removed from the code, or because we're getting rid of XUL altogether. We have quite a few of them, some of which are tables like the thread pane, most of which are more like simple lists.

This is a meta bug for their removal. We're not in any rush, so I won't be filing lots of bugs to do all the work now, but it will be handy to tie the work together for reference.

I posted on TB discussion forum, but also adding a link here for a possible replacement candidate: https://thunderbird.topicbox.com/groups/developers/Tc68d151e839d9e99/html-tree-replacement-for-the-xul-tree

We have a replacement.

We do? Go tell, please! That would be fantastic, assuming it works as well and as fast as the XUL trees.
