Package: notmuch
Version: 0.22-1
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if notmuch would allow separation between command-line 
options and their values so that I could run dump and not get an error.

pabs@chianamo ~ $ notmuch dump --gzip --output ~/.../notmuch-tags.gz
Option "output" needs a string argument.
Unrecognized option: --output
pabs@chianamo ~ $ notmuch dump --gzip --output=~/.../notmuch-tags.gz
Bad output file ~/.../notmuch-tags.gz

I don't want to have to manually type my home dir whenever I dump tags,
which I currently have to do since notmuch requires = as a separator.

pabs@chianamo ~ $ notmuch dump --gzip --output=/home/pabs/.../notmuch-tags.gz

Separation of long options and their values is a standard feature of
programs on Debian so it is surprising this doesn't work by default.

pabs@chianamo ~ $ ls -s --block-size M ~/.../notmuch-tags.gz
XXXM /home/pabs/.../notmuch-tags.gz
pabs@chianamo ~ $ ls -s --block-size=M ~/.../notmuch-tags.gz
XXXM /home/pabs/.../notmuch-tags.gz
