This function should interpret the flags that it finds and return a
suitable set of notmuch tags. I'd suggest that 'unread' messages get
both 'unread' and 'inbox' tags, as Maildir doesn't distinguish between
'don't show this to be by default again please' and 'I've read this
message'. It seems best to hide the maildir-specific details inside the
library instead of exposing them.

Also, we have only the 'unread' tag; we don't have a 'read' tag, which
would simply be the inverse of 'unread'.
