[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#909000: Enigmail 2.0 needed in Stretch after Thunderbird 60 upload

The problem here is that the newer enigmail from buster depends on gnupg (>=
2.2.8-2~), which is only available in stretch-backports. If there is no way to
make it work with gnupg from stable, I proprose to remove enigmail from
stable, and offer it via stretch-backports.

Whatever the eventual solution may be, it would be great to solve this issue
very soon, as this is currently breaking things for users in stable.
