Hi Jameson,

Thanks for this patch. I just pushed it (based on what I found
originally in spaetz' tree). Only after coming back here did I find that
you had sent a second version that colored "delete" tags by default.

I haven't added that part for a couple of reasons:

1. The commit message doesn't match the behavior of the patch, (it says
   "no coloring is applied" by default.

2. I think we'll go with a tag name of "deleted" rather than "delete".

I did fix up some indentation and a slightly scrambled commit
message. But maybe that only existed in spaetz' tree.

Finally, I checked the customization support, ("M-x customize", then
browse Applications->Email->Notmuch), and saw that notmuch-tag-face is
much easier to customize there, (provides a drop-down value menu with
buttons for modifying the face---where I couldn't even figure out how to
use customize for the new notmuch-search-line-faces).

Plus, I think both of these values should likely be merged into a single
face-selection option, (perhaps with a separate Boolean to determine
whether to highlight just the tag name or the whole line).

Thanks again for the improvements, and hopefully you'll see quicker
merging from me in the future.
