Daniel Kahn Gillmor [Fri, 11 May 2018 06:57:59 +0000 (02:57 -0400)]
cli/show: enable --decrypt=stash

Add fancy new feature, which makes "notmuch show" capable of actually
indexing messages that it just decrypted.

This enables a workflow where messages can come in in the background
and be indexed using "--decrypt=auto".  But when showing an encrypted
message for the first time, it gets automatically indexed.

This is something of a departure for "notmuch show" -- in particular,
because it requires read/write access to the database.  However, this
might be a common use case -- people get mail delivered and indexed in
the background, but only want access to their secret key to happen
when they're directly interacting with notmuch itself.

In such a scenario, they couldn't search newly-delivered, encrypted
messages, but they could search for them once they've read them.

Documentation of this new feature also uses a table form, similar to
that found in the description of index.decrypt in notmuch-config(1).

A notmuch UI that wants to facilitate this workflow while also
offering an interactive search interface might instead make use of
these additional commands while the user is at the console:

Count received encrypted messages (if > 0, there are some things we
haven't yet tried to index, and therefore can't yet search):

     notmuch count tag:encrypted and \
         not property:index.decryption=success and \
         not property:index.decryption=failure

Reindex those messages:

     notmuch reindex --try-decrypt=true tag:encrypted and \
         not property:index.decryption=success and \
         not property:index.decryption=failure
