Provide key bindings for stuffing everything with a notmuch-show-get-foo
function into the emacs kill-ring as text.

Currently this is just message-id, filename, and tags.

One thing I find myself doing often is going into raw message mode in
order to grab a message-id. This patch automates that by letting you
stash the message id in the emacs kill-ring (and X clipboard, if
running under X).  It also allows the same for filename and tags.
It would be pretty trivial to add other similar commands for stashing 
other headers and parts of a message given a corresponding 
notmuch-show-get-foo function.
