I don't see how inotify can be the solution unless the idea is to make
Notmuch run on Linux only.  Inotify is a Linux kernel API.  Some other
OSes have their own native file event notification facilities, but not
all of them have it, and most (if not all) only support file event
notifications for certain file systems and not for others (e.g., not for
NFS).
