Yes.  I was thinking of someone tagging a message as, say, flagged,
while it's still tagged unread.  Then it would change from new to old
in mutt.  OTOH, adding some other non-synchronized tag wouldn't change
it from new to old.  I don't think there is a "correct" solution; your
approach is probably the best compromise.

Yes, I suppose it should (something slipped by cworth's eagle-eyed
reviews!).  Though that appears to be the sole use of bool in all of
notmuch mailing list
