This doesn't worry me. gmime 2.6 is already successfully built on all
arches except mipsel and armhf:
i don't think armhf is a blocker at this point (though i've already
followed up with the arm porters about that to see if we can get it
fixed), and mipsel is just typically backlogged (that is, it hasn't
failed, it just hasn't gotten to build yet).
So i don't think switching notmuch over to a 2.6 dependency on the
buildd's would be a hindrance for notmuch.
