Indexing for Thunderbird

I've pretty much moved over to GMAIL for email, because I am willing to trade offlineness and some UI for search. Search--fast, working search--is a good thing.

Danny O'Brien pointed me to Mairix which indexes email in mbox format. Thunderbird saves email messages in mbox format.

Now all someone needs to do is to strap the two together properly... does anyone have a decent idea of how to write a Thunderbird extension? (Yes, this conversation should be happening at Mozillazine. But I'm lazy.)
