Indeed.  Did you follow the link to the definition to figure out what's
going on?

Ah... I found this:
IMO it's wrong to do that, but that is of no concern here.

Emacs 24.3.  A forward compatibility implementation for older versions
is available at

I didn't find any information about what minimal Emacs version Notmuch
expects but implies that it
is 24.1.

IMO it would be reasonable to expect at least 24.3, 24.5 or even 25.1.
See for release dates.

Or you might want to just drop this commit.  Or we could update the FAQ
to mention that one has to install cl-lib from GNU ELPA if one uses such
an ancient Emacs release.
