I might be wrong, but I don't think the Gnus agent can be easily reused
from notmuch. We could perhaps save the message as a draft upon C-c C-j,
and then have a periodic timer that checks if any of the drafts has
expired (maybe using a special, additional tag for the search) and send

Sounds doable, but maybe there's an easier way: what do more
knowleadgeble people think?

Dealing with failure is easy: Work hard to improve. Success is also
easy to handle: You've solved the wrong problem. Work hard to improve.
