Yup, that's what I did with "guix environment notmuch": it sets up a
build environment (and an interactive shell) for notmuch.  And I really
wonder why it can't find the file, it's there in the interactive shell.
It's possible that the error message is a red herring though, I'll look
into it.

So would you like me to patch the namespacing along with these changes
or leave it for another patch?

I'm using git-send-email on a regular basis, no problem with that.  (I
wonder why you would think it's difficult for me :p)

git-send-email comes with different workflows though, I'm not sure which
one Notmuch follows.  Do you prefer versioned patch series
(e.g. [PATCHv2], etc.) or patch updates sent with
