If we start with the obvious:
notmuch show --output-headers=date,from,subject,to,cc,reply-to ...
with the default being the current set.
Emitting everything would be easier but seems wasteful. I just looked
at a random message: in RFC822 syntax the header is 4073 bytes, and the
body is 1116 bytes. Keeping only the fields that notmuch emits reduces
the header to 295 bytes. Reply-To is 92 bytes, but not every message
