There sure is notmuch-after-tag-hook (in emacs MUA), but -hooks don't take
argument(s) so how does it know what was tagged (cannot remember if there 
are let-bound (dynamically bound!) variables that could have such

whatever way, tags are assigned to Message-Id:, so you'd need to find
the filename. With shell-command you can do notmuch | xargs pipeline
(plain 'mv' w/ 'shell-command' would have been easily replaced w/ 
'rename-file' if that were enough).
