do you mean "notmuch dump" here instead of "notmuch save"?

I'm trying to unpack what you are saying here. Are you saying that if
you are getting things coming back into your inbox, and you have not
applied your "lazy restore" patch, then you would need a script to check
your email which does:

notmuch dump > /tmp/notmuch.dump
notmuch new
notmuch restore < /tmp/notmuch.dump
