[Portland] [PATCH] xdg-email - add Thunderbird attachments support

In http://portland.freedesktop.org/wiki/EmailConfig, it says Moziila
Thunderbird does not support email attachments from xdg-email.
It turns out Thunderbird disabled attachments via a mailto: URL on
purpose, because they believe it is not secure. 
I'm proposing the following workaround: (see attachment)
In open_kde() / open_gnome(), look up the email client kde/gnome is
trying to run. If the client contains Thunderbird in its name, then
call run_thunderbird(), which parses the mailto url, reformats it in a
way that Thunderbird accepts, and then run Thunderbird.
open_xfce() does not need to do this because exo-open already does this.
