Interesting, 'R' in emacs gives empty content. I might have Austin's
reply change in this version -- although I suspect the problem is not
there. Everyone using emacs MUA with latest notmuch(1)es experiment
pressing 'R' while reading the mail I'm replying to

I think storing stuff to .../.cache/... is Great !!!
However, if we're "allowing" public software to use .../.cache/notmuch
directory we should have policy to do so. I suggest we add a description
file to notmuch source distribution which describes the public software
that are allowed to contain files in notmuch XDG directories. The file
could have format which describes the file/directory name, the software
using it and some description why this file is there.
Another thing is this .cache hardcoding. Should this be resolved
first by using $XDG_CACHE_HOME, (then *MAYBE* $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.cache)
and finally $HOME/.cache
