I on the other hand think that it is just the indexer, and that the
right way to integrate it into a MUA is by making this MUA call
notmuch to update the DB/index with the actions just performed on a
message/group of messages (moving, deleting, tagging, etc.).
For what I've read so far from messages of the authors in this mailing
list and the programmed behaviour, I think that is the intention
(though not fully implemented yet) and in my opinion the right one.
Maybe if the notmuch.el code would have been written as a set of hooks
into Gnus for customizing views this would have been more evident
(though I haven't neither used or looked at the vim front-end code),
or maybe I am missing the point entirely and the long-term goal of the
authors is to have a full-fledged MUA.
