I've reviewed this series, and it is a *very* nice cleanup; the latency
reduction makes it much more pleasant to develop notmuch safely.

My computer is weaker than jamie's (i have an older 4-core i5
processor), but with this series applied, the test suite went from 1m48s
to 0m29s for me.

Please apply this series!
