I can see that point of view.

It's a detail, but could you choose two names that are not substrings of
each other? Eventually we do want tab completion on the command line to
work :). Also, "search --for tags foo" suggests to me that
searching for tags matching foo. What about using --output for that?
One thing that is not completely clear to me at this point is what the
difference is between
notmuch search --for messages search-terms
notmuch show search-terms
