Currently the notmuch test suite uses (and tests) the python
bindings. Having the notmuch library build-depend on a seperate python
bindings package would create (I think) a circular build dependency.

Splitting the repo would also break all the existing distro
packaging of the bindings (e.g. for debian).

So, not extremely keen to do that, at the moment.
