Address Completion

If I press <TAB> looking for an address while writing mail, 
vanilla notmuch offers me one preselected candidate. Since I use 
ivy-mode, this canididate narrows down the list of all candidates, 
forcing me to delete the initial input (C-a C-k)  before I can 
select among this list.

I currently override this behavior by setting 
notmuch-address-selection-function to my own function:

 (defun jv-notmuch--address-selection (prompt collection 
     prompt collection nil nil orig 'notmuch-address-history)) 
 (setq notmuch-address-selection-function 

This works as intended.

Now my question: Is this something specific to ivy-mode, and would 
it be possible to add an option which simulates the above behavior 
(basically, using the pre-set variable 'orig' instead of 
(car-options) in notmuch-address-expand-name), so that I do not 
need to insert my own function which adds no functionality?

Thanks (also for CC me via PM)

And by the way, notmuch really is great, thank you for this
