I fully agree.

Ohh, I had never considered that, but true, if another mail client
modifies maildir flags, we probably want to have that reflected as notmuch
tags as well...
So, yes that should work even better (my real script is a bit fancier,
changing output options ans stuff):
notmuch new # make db consistent (earlier deleted mails etc)
notmuchsync -s -n # MailDir flags update and "cur" dir moving
offlineimap # sync with IMAP server
notmuch new # incorporate new mails in notmuch db
notmuchsync -r -n # reflect changed MailDir flags in notmuch tags
Sorry for all the spam today about my toys. I'll try to keep a bit
more quiet in the future in order to not start annoying you. :-)
