Can you fill me in a little bit here? The message-mode documentation is quite thin on what the distinctions are between "reply", "wide-reply", and "followup". Meanwhile, I don't think we have any need to support different implementations of reply, (that is---I don't want one binding for a "notmuch-based reply" and another for a "message-mode-based reply" without any functional difference in the result). Instead I'd like to define what the functionality is that we want here, and then provide that. I do like taking advantage of things like message-mode functionality wherever it exists, so I'm happy to have the default reply button do (with-current-notmuch-show-message (message-reply)) or whatever. But meanwhile, I'll *also* want to understand what the variations are here so that we can *also* implement them inside of "notmuch reply" so that non-emacs-based interfaces can easily get at similar functionality. So I'm holding off on pushing this patch until I understand it better, (and documentation strings for the new functions might help for that---provided they have more detail than the corresponding documentation strings for the message-mode functions being called). -Carl -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
