You can also use XPCOM interfaces with Add-on SDK ; that's the only way
to do some i/o stuff. The point is to know how to use specific
Thunderbird's API : connect to events (right-click), get some content
(selected text in a message), etc. I don't know if it's similar to
Firefox's API (which is, by the way, a simple DOM manipulation).

Once zim-clip will be stable enough, I'll take a look at Thunderbird
extension dev.
