Emacs sending email via gmailieer

I am so close to getting my ideal email setup working...

Instead of offlineimap or mbsync, I use gmailieer to pull down emails. It is quite fast and works with notmuch to map Gmail labels to notmuch tags. Much cleaner than the awkward way of accessing Gmail through IMAP. Where I am stuck is in sending the email.

I could set up smtpmail as described in https://notmuchmail.org/emacstips/#index12h2 but gmailieer recently (v1.1) gained the capability to send mail. I would like to use that if I can so.

Gmailieer sends a draft through Gmail without a problem (once I create a draft using message mode in emacs). Both sending a file and sending from stdin work:
$ gmi send -C path/to/mailbox 1586809748.A123456Z12345.test\:2\,D
$ cat 1586809748.A123456Z12345.test\:2\,D | gmi send -C path/to/mailbox

But I am stuck configuring emacs to use gmailieer instead of sendmail or smtpmail.el. According to the emacs manual, the variable send-mail-function can be set but none of the choices looks appropriate for gmailieer:

Anyone have an idea how to configure emacs to use gmailieer to send emails?

Mark, you'll likely have to write a send-mail-function that works with
ilieer. Or, you'll have to write a wrapper script that makes ilieer's
command line behave similarly to the classic Unix sendmail. At my former
employer we took the second option. SMTP was locked down but the
security folks provided a command line tool that could send email. The
Emacs afficionados patched that program to be behavior-compatible with
sendmail so we could set Emacs' 'send-mail-function' to
the 'sendmail-send-it' function.

Hope that helps!
