After banging my head against the wall a bit more, I realised what
should have been obvious from the beginning: I need to have vim built
with ruby support.  So after grabbing the vim source and

I am now happily writing this from notmuch-ruby.  As obvious as this
should have been, do you think it deserves a short sentence at the top
of the == install == section of your README?
