It sounds like both toggle *and* reverse operations are a bit unclear,
especially on multiple messages and/or tag changes. I asked for the
reverse operation using a prefix argument in a whim, but perhaps we're
better off starting without either toggle or reverse.
There's another angle. People seem to want the +deleted change also to
have -inbox. I'm not sure they'd want the reverse of "deleted" to also
put it back to inbox. David also seemed to have issues with the
asymmetry of desirable tag changes. So how about we just let people
define their tag changes using customization, including whatever reverse
they think is best? They could have "k d" (+deleted -inbox) for delete,
and "k D" (-deleted) for undelete. Or whatever they want.
And we can build on top of that later as we see how this feels.
I didn't actually try the patches, but based on the description the
general approach seemed fine. Thanks for doing this, Mark.
