[neomutt-devel] Tagging Emails

Background: I'm trying to improve how NeoMutt internally handles tagged sets of emails.
If I tag ten emails, then perform an operation on them,
in which order would you expect them to be worked on?
For example, if you piped them to an external program
- User's sort order
Top to bottom in the order they'd appear in the index
(including any threading)
- Selection order
The first email tagged would be processed first, and so on.
Typically, the user would tag top-to-bottom in the index,
so this could be the same as the sort order.
- Unseen order -- dependent on other factors, e.g. the mailbox type
- Maildir: Alphabetical
- Imap: By UID (Unique ID)
- Generally: By memory address (for speed)
What do you think?
