Fine. My joke wen stale quickly. I'll agree to remove it.

Shouldn't we still print *something* here, though ("No new mail")?
Imagine the new user trying to ensure "notmuch new" is working---and
let's say it's not, (due to the current symlink bug or so). A silent
success here won't make it clear whether "notmuch new" has actually done
anything or not.
