[PATCH v2 1/2] emacs: add a filter option to show

Mark Walters markwalters1009 at gmail.com

Show the current thread with a different filter (i.e., open messages
in the thread matching the new query).

Bound to 'l' for "limit".

Note that it is not the same as filter in search mode as it replaces
the existing query rather than ANDing with it (but it does keep the
thread-id part of the query).
