One could imagine a history that would enable a conventional undo stack
for a notmuch interface. The trick with making that usable would be the
need to refresh views to make what was undone evident, (and the fact
that some of the operations could be large/slow).

All of those issues kept me from pursuing the idea in early days of
coding up the emacs notmuch UI. But someone could certainly explore the
implementation further if desired.
