You said you're reposting, could you give the message-id of the first
post of your patchset on the ML? I cannot find it.

And I don't mean to be a jerk, I'm just offering my help!

Well, maybe trying to work together to have a patchset that supports all
keywords schemes with a common interface, including notmuch, and have it
done so that it can be merged in mutt isn't a bad idea?

I'm not trying to invert the flow, au contraire, I'm trying to get it
further to a point where it fits not only your use case, but most.

You said in an earlier post that you appreciate the momentum neomutt
has achieved, and regretted it was not for mutt directly. But when it
comes to collaborate, you're just discarding several people's input
(Mehdi, Pietro or myself), saying that first you want your way merged
and then we can talk.
