Ooh, a .vapi for notmuch, that is something that makes me happy. It
could be shipped with notmuch proper, even if it's rough now, and then
improved as people use it.

Now I use "lbdb", which gets very slow as time goes. You idea creates a
most definitely superior system.

As it happens, some of us already are interested.

As soon as automatic gobject introspection based language bindings
become workable for at least python and perl, my plan is to rewrite
buffy[1] in Vala.

A second plan would be to have buffy show stats for saved notmuch
queries as well as (or instead of) mail folders.

It's very nice to know I wouldn't be the only person playing with Vala
around here.
