Thanks to David Bremner's patience, I've managed to produce the code
needed to perform the repeat last tagging functionality I was hoping
for. It is based on the following function (my very first elisp

(defun inwit/notmuch-tree-repeat-tag ()
  "Repeat the last tagging operation"
     (split-string-and-unquote (car notmuch-read-tag-changes-history))))

I've then bound that function to `.`, which is convenient since I use
Evil and that's the standard for "repeat the last operation":

(evil-define-key 'nil
  notmuch-tree-mode-map (kbd ".") 'inwit/notmuch-tree-repeat-tag)

Anyway, I share this here in case others might find it useful. And with
the code I share my wonder about notmuch, emacs and floss in general.
And my gratitude! :)
