Thanks for catching the "which" misspelling, which should obviously be
fixed if/when the patch is applied.  notmuch-search-terms(7) contains
both capitalized and non-capitalized spellings of "boolean".  I welcome
capitalization cleanup for this over the whole codebase, and hope that a
decision about this particular nit-pick isn't cause for delay of an
otherwise uncontroversial improvement.
