I agree that C-u is a little cumbersome -- I think I would be happy for
a toggle for single messages (with a single tag change), but for
multiple messages like a thread I think it would be very unclear what it
was doing.

In your example I think d on a thread with a deleted message would
undelete the thread, rather than deleting the other messages in the
thread. But whichever of the two we chose I could see people being
unsure which it was going to do.

It would be plausible to modify my patch so that k u does the same as
Ctrl-u k (i.e. takes you to the reverse tag operations) which would
avoid the awkward ctrl-u. (I don't want to add another key to the top
level maps as we are really very short on free keys)

Best wishes
