cli/insert: require succesful message indexing for success status
Add --keep option to keep any remaining stuff in index or file. We could distinguish between failures to index and failures to apply tags or maildir sync, but for simplicity just have one.

EXIT STATUS
===========
-This command returns exit status 0 if the message was successfully added
-to the mail directory, even if the message could not be indexed and
-added to the notmuch database. In the latter case, a warning will be
-printed to standard error but the message file will be left on disk.
-
-If the message could not be written to disk then a non-zero exit status
-is returned.
+This command returns exit status 0 on succesful mail delivery,
+non-zero otherwise. The default is to indicate failed mail delivery on
+any errors, including message file delivery to the filesystem, message
+indexing to Notmuch database, changing tags, and synchronizing tags to
+maildir flags. The ``--keep`` option may be used to settle for
+successful message file delivery.
