Checking for new files is easy; notmuch already does that, and so
handling renames doesn't seem all that difficult. The hard part to me is
detecting deleted messages; about the only thing I can imagine being at
all efficient is to use inotify in a daemon. Starting that daemon up
would entail scanning the database for all messages in a particular
directory and then looking for those files to see if they were still
around. Ick.
