You are certainly not alone, but I don't see why this needs to be
implemented in notmuch itself. I, for one, simply have a get-mail script
which calls offlineimap, notmuch new, and finally my sorting
script. This seems like a more straightforward way to manage this;
afterall, there are times (although rare) that I wish to run notmuch new
without running my sorting script (e.g. while debugging said
script). Personally, I'd say this is something best left to the user.
