As I mentioned, I rarely read mail in a linear fashion; I don't want it
to show me another message, I want to see the index again. I'm torn over
whether I just want the index to always be visible; having the full
screen available to view a single thread is awfully nice. It seems like
a 'I'm done, go back to the index' is just what is needed here.

yes, that does make a lot of sense, and do precisely the same for the
'x' key, leaving 'q' the way to get out of a message without changing
it at all.

I'd take 'x' for 'return to search view; otherwise you're going to wear
out my pinky reaching for the shift key. That leaves us with three
'a': advance to next message, archiving current thread, marking read
messages. ('A' forces all messages in thread to be marked as read)
'x': exit to search view, archiving current thread, marking read
messages. ('X' forces all messages in thread to be marked as read)
'q': quit back to search view, leaving thread tags unmodified.
There's a slightly weird asymmetry here -- there's no way to advance to
the next thread and not mark messages.
