I don't understand what you mean here.  It seems the
thunderbird-enigmail package should depend on thunderbird and install
bits so that one can use openpgp within thunderbird.  Are you suggesting
that the core enigmail code should be installed somehow in an enigmail
package, with only the bits that have to go in thunderbird-specific
locations in a thunderbird-enigmail package?  Are you suggesting this so
that both thunderbird-enigmail and seamonkey-enigmail can depend on the
enigmail common bits?  I can see this in theory, but
thunderbird-enigmail doesn't install any files except in
thunderbird-specific directories so it would require a reorg, and that
doesn't seem worth it.
