Yes, I think notmuch2 was the least disliked suggestion.

I'm interested. The blocker for me at the moment is getting the tests
working without tox / venvs.  I'm hoping we can test with the system
python and the built, but not installed module. I guess we need to build
it so that the C extension part is loaded. The shim in doesn't work for me, it doesn't manage to set
PYTHONPATH so that notdb is importable.
