Search with notmuch when using maildir backend

I might try and implement this myself if I have the time, however I'll leave it here in case anyone wants to take it.

feature maildir notmuch

That gets a tad interesting as you can have a single notmuch store covering several mail dirs.

While you will be able to pretty easily grab the filenames, that won't actually tell you which account the message is from

Should be fairly easy to infer the account by looking at the source of an account and matching it with the filenames returned by notmuch. Am I missing something?

That could indeed work. Looking forward to a patch :)

Are the maintainers still open to a patch for something like this?

I started working on something like this, that would allow using a configured external command to search the maildir and return paths to emails matching the query. So this could be configured to use notmuch to return search and filter results.

Sure, send what you have to the mailing list and then we can talk about it.
