Wizard for setting up Gmail IMAP account in Thunderbird

I've made a Thunderbird extension which adds wizard to setup Gmail IMAP account. After installing the extension, you can setup Gmail IMAP account from the File->New->Account menu. It creates new account and SMTP server settings. It also synchronizes draft, sent, and trash folders between Thunderbird and Gmail.

Please note that there are two limitations:
  • You should use the same language setting in Thunderbird and Gmail
  • Only English and Japanse are supported
If your settings don't satisfy the above, you will fail to sync up special folders.

You can download the extension from my homepage.

I don't know, if you read AMO discussions, so I'll post my request also here.
Is it possible to add automatic selection of Spam folder?

For me, It could be useful.

Thanks in advance.
