Re:Notmuch and emacspeak



Thanks Bart. Also note, while not wanting to detract from the work you have
been doing, it is probably worth mentioning that emacs 23 added the new mode
mairix.el. From the v23 NEWS file -

** mairix.el is an interface to mairix, a free tool for indexing and
searching locally stored mail.  It allows you to query mairix and
display the search results with Rmail, Gnus and VM.  Note that there
is an existing Gnus back end, nnmairix.el, which should be used with
Maildir/MH setups.

Emacs 23 also added xesam.el. Again, from the v23 NEWS file

** xesam.el is an implementation of Xesam, an interface to (desktop)
search engines like Beagle, Strigi, and Tracker.  The Xesam API
requires D-Bus for communication.

To what extent these two new modes add/enhance or conflict with notmuch I
have no idea. I do find xesam.el potentially interesting as it uses dbus for
comunication, which appears to becoming the preferred way to communicate
between different processes. In fact, I plan to look at this as part of the
work I'm going to do on emacspeak's interface with TTS engines, though that is
still some way off.
