 I should mention that in my experience it's usually not that hard to
 construct searches (or filters on searches) that pair down to just the
 messages you want to tag, in which case you can just tag the entire
 buffer.

Maybe its more a question of key bindings:
1. add some special tag to messages
2. filter on this tag
3. do something with the whole buffer
4. remove special tag from all messages
5. close filter

I'd welcome a standard set of key bindings for it.

I think this is only a subset of the requested functionality, since one
can only tag consecutive threads at once.

I guess so. I still haven't really switched to notmuch for real mail so
I have little experience. I don't quite remember why I would have found
it handy when I wrote it, but it was while I was busy experimenting with
tagging my existing archive.

shift-v from within a notmuch-show buffer will show the entire source

i don't know the answers to your other questions, sorry!

That did the trick - thanks!

 I do not think that's possible at the moment but that could be quite
 useful.

It's possible, and works the way you'd think it would -- just select a
bunch of threads in the search list, and then tag them. It will apply
the tag to the messages in the region. (In fact, tagging a single thread
is just a special case of this, with a one-line region.)
