Hey, Mark. I think this is a useful idea, but I think the
implementation is more complicated than it needs to be. I would rather
just have a switch that allows me to search by thread, instead of by
message. Something like just --by-thread would work for me.
I guess it might be nice to have such fined grain control to specify
independent search terms for both messages and threads simultaneously,
but I really don't think I would ever use such capabilities, and the
additional syntax is a little confusing. But I certainly would use the
ability to search entire threads instead of just messages.
