Hello,

I'd like to request a feature. My intent is to redirect PostScript
printing of a message via `notmuch-show-print-message` to a file.
Ideally (IMHO) `notmuch-show-print-message` would accept an optional
prefix argument ("C-u"), which would be passed down to
`ps-print-buffer`, which would then prompt me for the name of the file,
and save the PS to that file.

This would be specific to ps-print, and does not make sense for lpr
printing, of course.


Many thanks and looking forward to your thoughts,

  --alexander

One workaround is to set notmuch-print-mechanism to
notmuch-print-ps-print/evince, and save the file from evince.

In principle yes, but this requires a specific third party app to be
installed.

We have all necessary means built into Emacs already, so it would be
nice being able to achieve this with the available on-board means only.
