I submitted tests for this today.

Cool - I'll take a look if I can get you an updated patch tonight.

Thanks for these updates.
I have two more that I submitted
- the 'G' keybinding that calls an external poll program: this allows
you to run notmuch new from within emacs at times that are convenient
for the user; otherwise a user either needs to manually run this from
outside emacs, or notmuch new is run through cron or offlineimap and
in that case we get the weird Xapian database access errors
in the discussion of the patch there was concern that this stalls
emacs for potentially a long time - I find that acceptable as email is
imported - other people may find differently (and decide not to use
this feature) id:m339z4csi1.fsf at x200.gr8dns.org
- the 'd' keybinding that deletes mail/threads (similar to 'a'rchive)
id:1271891763-10757-1-git-send-email-hohndel at infradead.org
Additionally, I'd really love to see the address completion to be
included in notmuch (at least the emacs part of it - I think there's
still some debate whether the vala sources would cause too much of a
build dependency to be integrated.
I don't think this was ever submitted to the mailing list as a
patch. The .el file that was posted on IRC is here:
