Hey, Bergey. This is something that I think needs improvement as well.
I've been just manually constructing the bbdb entries myself.
But what I've really been meaning to get going is address
auto-completion from the database, which I'm pretty sure could obviate
my need for bbdb altogether:
Getting it working seems more difficult than it should be, though, and
the existing solutions seem a bit slower than they need to be . So I
think there's also room for improvement here.
For instance, I think it would be rad if notmuch provided this
functionality natively, in the CLI, or even in the library . I think
it's definitely doable, and it would be a nice little project.
The emacs integration could be a bit smoother as well. A single config
option should either turn the functionality on or off. That would be
very convenient .

 For what it's worth, I would prefer a solution that didn't involve
any caching of addresses outside of the database.
 I also find it changes the behavior of the ido tab completion
interface that I'm used to using in message mode.
