Well we definitely do need that operation ("advance to next thread
without archiving" to complement our existing "advance to next thread
after archiving"). Any suggestions for what the keybinding should be for
that? What are you using?

And once we have that, changing space bar to only operate within the
current thread and not doing any advancing will definitely make it a lot
less magic and less confusing.

So I'm in favor of that at least.

The bug is still present for the explicit "archive this thread"
operation, (even if we disentangled it from any notion of advancing to
the next thread). So we'll still want to fix that.

I can define to-me as a folder (and I do do that). The reason I want
saved searches is that I also want to have folders such as "notmuch
to-me", "cairo to-me", etc. with common sub-expressions for what to-me
means. And if I add an email address I want to be able to update that in
1 place rather than in N different folder specification.

It's probably simpler to call these "search macros" rather than "saved
searches", because that's all the feature really is.
