One question though:

In bindings/python/notmuch/database.py class Database functions
create() and open() have the following last lines:

+        if status != STATUS.SUCCESS:
+            raise NotmuchError(status)
+        self._db = db
+        return status

What is the point returning 'status' in the only case the
value is STATUS.SUCCESS -- is some caller interested on this ?
