As discussed downthread, we should really make this fallback to load
~/.notmuch-config in case ~/.notmuch/config doesn't exist.

But as soon as we have that backwards compatibility in place, then
there's no rush for this change at all. We can wait until we actually
have a second file to store in here before we move from a single
.notmuch-config file to a ~/.notmuch/config file within a directory.
