I don't care much about mail/thunderbird being the latest version, we
have other versioned package directories like php* and postgresql*-*,
and pretty much everything of gnome and kde.

To make it more consistent, we could rename mail/thunderbird to
mail/thunderbird1 and www/firefox to www/firefox1, but they'll be
EOL'd soon enough to make it not worth the effort anyway.
