The existence of is a bug that we hope to fix soon. It is
used only by the obsolete and deprecated python bindings. Current
bindings (under bindings/python-cffi) use version.txt.

Adding a version header to notmuch.el and maintaining it
semi-automatically in the way is seems more fragile (sed'ing
a file also edited by humans) and more work (the code to generate
notmuch-pkg.el already exists).
