Given the recent long thread concerning upstream decisions about defaults in
Thunderbird 3.0beta4 it seems to me that just because upstream makes a specific
decision does not always mean that is the best decision. What happens
when releasing a package in Fedora can be given a possible better decision
than upstream at times - I wonder what others feel about the defaults in this
 case for touchpad behaviour?
