Sorry, I didn't phrase that very well.  The notmuch docs (as of this
patch) explain that we don't commit if we're in an atomic block.  The
Xapian docs also say that, *and* they say that if we're not in atomic
block the close *does* try to commit.  I think that's worth mentioning
in our close docs.

Cheers,
Trevor
