The code looks good to me. 

The only issue I noticed when comparing with new is that check for notmuch
database upgrade (and actual upgrade) is not done...

... nor is this done in notmuch insert either.

Maybe in these cases it is better than the upgrade is not attempted but
it might be good to address this in the namual page (here and in insert
page) ?

Anyway I like the feature and would take it into use sometime in the
(distant?) future (i.e. when I'd tune my mail delivery again).
