No. According to the documentation, this is the return value for
`bbdb-select-message`. But bbdb select message should never be called if
bbdb-mua-auto-update-p is nil.

Well, I really just want bbdb to stop ignoring the
bbdb-mua-auto-update-p variable. I think that before that works, there
is little point in setting it to a custom function and posting that

That said, my eventual goal is to have bbdb automatically update
addresses in only some Gnus groups.
