ah, sorry, i've just read id:20191109221358.4349-1-johan.parin at gmail.com
and its associated messages, so i can see that some of the questions i'm
asking are already under discussion.

I see that you just want user-agent and x-mailer for your own purposes.

Maybe it would be worthwhile to propose that narrow, limited change as a
simple patch, without configurability and see what it looks like?  I
would personally be more likely to advocate for merging a patch that
meets the specific needs of a notmuch user, and increase the
configurability surface of notmuch.

If processing a couple of extra headers on a long thread is too
expensive for some consumer, i'd suggest that is an optimization for the
consumer to tackle.
