  Tach is a minor mode that adds mutt-like attachment handling to

 I wanted to see if there would be any interest in adding this to notmuch
 in 0.4 or after. It makes composing messages with attachments much more
 pleasant that using raw mml-mode, and would likely be much more
 accomodating to new users. With the new notmuch-mua hooks, it would be
 easy to turn on and off as well. I've been using it for a number of
 months, and have not had any problems with it.

I have not played with the version you posted earlier - sofar I use the
attachment functionality that Emacs offers by default and I agree that
this is lacking.
From your description I can't quite tell if tach is overkill,
though. When I just attach a file I'd like to be able to do this just
using the minibuffer to pick a file - not having to open another buffer,
press +, find the file, etc...
 
 One issue to note: if you start composing a message with tach-mode
 enabled, and then disable it, the attachments you added with tach won't
 get added properly (there will just be a plaintext list of them at the
 the bottom of the message after a separator). In other words, tach
 converts the attachment list on sending, just as message-mode adds
 headers, removes text follows this line, etc. This doesn't seem like
 an issue to me (a message started by message-mode can't be sent by
 another MUA either) but I did want to bring it to people's attention.

I think that's reasonable

 If there is interest, I would take the necessary steps to integrate it
 and prepare a patch.

I'd be interested to see a notmuch integration...

I agree, for the most part -- but if you're attaching multiple files, or
decide to change which file you're attaching, some sort of list view is
necessary. Or at least, at is for me. Anyway, I tried to make it pretty
unobtrusive and intuitive, so hopefully it won't *feel* too much like
overkill.
