Your rotation using lua. Now you won't ever run out of keys :)

## neomuttrc
set my_index_id=1
macro index i "<enter-command>lua-source ~/.neomutt/lua/rotate_index.lua<enter>"

## LUA ~/.neomutt/lua/rotate_index.lua
index_format = {
   "'%4C %Z$ %{%Y-%b-%d} %-23.23F|%4c|%s'",
   "'%4C %Z %{%b %d} %-23.23F (%3l) %s'",
   "'%4C %Z %{%Y-%m-%d %H:%M} %-23.23F (%3c) %s'"^L

for k,v in pairs(index_format) do
   if k == tonumber(mutt.get('my_index_id')) then
       nxt = (k+1) % (#index_format+1)
       if nxt==0 then nxt=1 end
