Here is a set of 3 patches to implement (some) output control. [PATCH 1/3] rename option to select output format to --format from --output. [PATCH 2/3] notmuch-show.c: make calls to format functions conditional
The first two are essentially suggestions for Scott. In particular the first is not needed at all for this little experiment. [PATCH 3/3] notmuch-show.c: prototype tabular output format, with output control The third implements a new "tabular" output format, and shows how it might be conditionally controlled. At the moment the only possibilities to output are message-id, match flag, and filename. This is mainly a matter of laziness. I didn't want to go too crazy before Scott's reached some final(ish) version.
