Hey, Mark. I really like the idea, since I've been looking for
something like this for a while, but there's something I'm confused
about. Is this meant to replace notmuch-search, or notmuch-show? I had
been hoping for a notmuch *show* replacement that shows the nice tree
view for the thread, with a single message view below. But it sounds
like you're meant to be replacing notmuch search? That seems confusing
to me, particularly in light of the big performance hit you describe.
I'll wait for some further explanation before I jump into a full review.
