Mark had a similar comment, so here's my reply: id:20140727162426.gf13...@mit.edu I'm happy with adding more transparency around this, though I'd prefer to do it as follow-up to avoid expanding this series and because I'm pretty sure adding something like notmuch_database_get_features wouldn't require any non-trivial changes to the stuff in this series. > BR, > Jani. _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list email@example.com http://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
