Mark had a similar comment, so here's my reply:

I'm happy with adding more transparency around this, though I'd prefer
to do it as follow-up to avoid expanding this series and because I'm
pretty sure adding something like notmuch_database_get_features
wouldn't require any non-trivial changes to the stuff in this series.
