Well, for starters folders may change (say archiving those on the
imap side), the semantic tags do not.

Second, I let notmuch index multiple email addresses in the same store,
meaning my folder queries are then nested rather deep.

So my lovely tag:python query amounts to `notmuch search ''`

Which... is a mouthful.

Regexes aren't a solution, just makes it now two problems as I have
multiple python lists that could match ;)


PS: not op, but also re-tagging even though I have emails filtered to
dedicated folders via sieve.
