notmuch search / result:messages instead of threads

is it possible to show one item per matching message in the result of
notmuch search?
The standard seems to be one item per thread, not one per message.

the "--output=messages" option doesn't seem to solve the problem, as it
results only in the IDs. No more information (like headerdata, subject, date
etc.) is given. So this would lead to new search requests, one per message.
Which can be a list of hundreds (or thousands) of mails. This isn't useful
just to show a list of matching messages with subject, date, authors etc.,

What's the way to go here? Is there any solution?
