So I think that would be a very very great idea to make every search
through xapian. Because currently I'm testing cyrus-imapd-3.0.6 and
activated the xapian index.

After turn on telemetry it's seem Thunderbird just do a « classic » search.

So that's mean when I do search from Thunderbird it's very slow, and I
build the xapian index for almost nothing because almost 90% of my users
use Thunderbird as MUA.

Do you want I create a issue on github ?
