I actually have that as a work in progress package, but I can no longer
work on it.. if I really do have it, there might be further dependencies
which are needed or a massive amount of tests which need to be patched.
Are you interested in taking this over?

So the name initial tagging is just wrong? I did not do this when I
started using notmuch because I have my own 'wrapper' around what gets
my mail and notmuch... mail comes in, inbox tag gets removed, tags
according to list/person/organisation get applied, emacs view of notmuch
is setup to show the tags and searches.

this really nice addition of initials between the quote chars?
