Thanks for the review.

The question is which kind of simplicity you have in mind. I think that
my version is simpler to type (less keystrokes). But if others have
different opinion, I don't mind.

This should be the case with both implementations.

Why do you think that case-sensitive address matching should be the
default? In theory local-part can be case sensitive, but I've never seen
that in reality. So this default would only be useful if you want to
research how people type your email address :)

What do you mean by phrase and comment? Address syntax is defined by

Yes, there is a lot of possible options. I don't think that notmuch has
to support all of them. If people need something special like "use last
that has something additional to plain address", they can always do
--unique=none and do their own post-processing.
