Dear notmuch-emacs developers,

it would be nice if there was a facility to wash (= shorten)
the displayed To:, From:  and Subject headers at least for
the display of notmuch search results.

>From the users perspective this could be done via a list of
regular expressions with corresponding short forms.

I assume this would be best achieved in a frontend, not in notmuch
the command line utility.


Example use case:
Some of my emails are from a request tracker and have
extraordinary long From: and Subject: suffixes which add up to 49
characters.  The only way to see the relevant parts of both From:
and Subject: in this cases is to use notmuch-emacs in a single,
maximized window.  I would like to radically shorten this
boilerplate.


Ciao; Gregor
