Hi all,

Wow, 'notmuch' looks like a very interesting project. In 2008, I wrote an
e-mail (Maildir) search tool called 'mu'[1], also using Xapian and GMime; my
plan was at some point to turn it into a mail reader (use
offlineimap/fetchmail etc. for getting the mail, and something else for
sending it), but I never got that far. Search works pretty well
though. Anyhow, it seems notmuch is getting there quickly.

Anyhow, I'll study the notmuch code and see if there are some useful bits in
my code that might make sense there, e.g., various dir scanning optimizations,
see [2].

Good luck!
