I don't think this should be addressed in nautilus-sendto at all.
I think it should be addressed in the thunderbird package, by making
/usr/bin/thunderbird command-line compatible with upstream Mozilla
Thunderbird (#855872).

If Debian's thunderbird script isn't command-line-compatible with
upstream's executable, then it should not have the same name.
