It looks nice. I'm watching Chris Wilson play with it now, (in spite of
the fact that Chris sent patches already---he wasn't actually using
notmuch until he saw this vim interface appear).

I'm actually surprised as to how faithfully it replicates the notmuch.el
experience. And some of that includes misfeatures that I just hadn't
figured out how to do better, (like the global toggling of signature

So, well done!

I think the only thing we noticed is that "filter" doesn't add the "and"
between the old and new search terms. But Chris may have more to comment

Let's definitely merge it into the repository. As things are changing
quickly now, it will be nice to be able to update both interfaces in
concert. (Like with my patch that changes --max-threads to --max, etc.)

I don't know how realistic it will be to keep both interfaces totally
synchronized in terms of look-and-feel, colors, keybindings, etc. But it
might be nice to do that as much as possible. I think it would be
helpful if we could have interface discussions as an entire community
and not split based on choice of editor.
