You want it once you try it :)

That could work too. We might have to store the name of the composition
buffer in a variable that's buffer-local to the notmuch-show buffer, so
that Notmuch does not get confused when composing several emails at the
Having a conversation area in the same buffer has
some benefits though:
- Less key presses to start composing.
- No need to play with buffers to display both the thread and the composition.
- The above problem disappears, there is no need to manually keep a
relation ship between 2 buffers since there is only one buffer.
With this workflow however, we don't need to cite the previous email
when composing. So it'd be nice to have an option to discard the
citation (I think it is a nice option in general).
This could be done with `notmuch-mua-cite-function', or, maybe better,
have a dedicated option so that `notmuch-mua-reply' does not include the
citation in the first place.
