May I give my 2 cents on this subject ?

The upstream states in its website's main page that this project is
deprecated and users should use Mozilla Thunderbird. So, I see to
options: 1) remove both, as they might be useless; 2) remove
'spicebird-bin' (as there is no binary available anymore) e fix
'spicebird' to build from source for those want to use it for some

Personally, I think 1st solution is better.
