Change the buffer name to a uniquified subject of the thread (i.e. the subject of the first message in the thread) instead of the thread-id. This is more meaningful to the user, and will make it easier to scroll through numerous open buffers.
Note that this patch adds an optionsal `buffer-name' argument to notmuch show. This version of the patch improves on the first version by ensuring that the buffer names are unique, and that the `notmuch-show' command can still be used interactively.
