This obsoletes [1]. It is mainly a rebase against master, but also
adds one test (see below).  I have been running this code in
production for a few weeks now, although without using any of the
fancy new features.

+Notmuch is configured, but there's not yet a database at
+       MAIL_DIR/.notmuch
+You probably want to run "notmuch new" now to create that database.
+Note that the first run of "notmuch new" can take a very long time
+and that the resulting database will use roughly the same amount of
+storage space as the email being indexed.
