I don't know exactly how org-mode supports gnus, but I think pretty much
the same... Basically what it allows is: 

1. When calling org-store-link (or org-capture) from a notmuch-message
or notmuch-search window, store a link to this buffer.

2. When opening a link in org-mode, if the link is a notmuch link, open
the corresponding notmuch buffer.

I use this to empty my inbox and quickly store todo items to my TODO
list/gtd file along the way.

I believe that further org/notmuch integration could be beneficial, and
this represents a first step.
