Hey, Daniel.  This is really nice!  All I had to do was load it in my
emacs config after loading notmuch:

(require 'notmuch)
(load-file "~/.notmuch/bbdb-notmuch.el")

It works very well: snarfs contacts like a charm, and, I must say, the
coloring of names depending on their status in bbdb is really hot!  Nice

Thanks so much for this contribution.  I would be thrilled if this made
it into upstream, maybe with a config to let people turn the sender
highlighting on or off.  Maybe in the mean time we can put it in
