notmuch.el: "wash" date in message display

I miss some of the Gnus "wash" functions available for message display.
There was one that either reformatted the Date: header into my time
zone, or displayed the Date in terms of elapsed time from now (e.g. 1
hour ago, 1 day ago, etc.).  I don't remember which, but I'd be happy
with either.

Has anybody integrated a feature like that into notmuch.el?  It wouldn't
be hard, but I'd feel dumb if I did the work and there was some variable
I could set to get a similar effect.

-- this shows (date) in local time in addition to the default Date:
in case time zones differ...

Hi

I agree that something like this would be useful. I made some
suggestions further down in the thread Tomi linked to above: in
particular I think there should be three possibilities -- show original
date, date in my timezone, or both.

As three of us seem to be thinking of patching/writing our snippets to
do this, I think it could well be worth including in notmuch. I am happy
to review a patch.

Best wishes

Mark
