You could make the last line 'exec /usr/local/bin/notmuch "$@"' :D
(and if you use debian, #!/bin/dash...)

I use a C wrapper to do the same (with date prefixes like 
2014-05-09 (Fri) 12:47:19) -- I originally did it to do argument
conversions around .. to have date-based searches before those came
to notmuch (and I am still using it, as I don't have to type date: prefix)

IIRC someone suggested/asked whether we'd get logs where all Message-ID:s
affected were logged. That could be useful (and produce lot of log when
one does notmuch tag +foobar '*')

That means to do logging with this granularity may prove problematic...
