This is a bit unwieldy.  How about something based on the config file
comment?

  A new configuration option, `new.ignore`, lets users specify a
  ;-separated list of file and directory names that will not be searched
  for messages by "notmuch new".

Plus, this way it's not so bad that we can't upgrade an existing config
file comment.
