Arguments in favour of the latter:

1) several API calls don't return notmuch_status_t, so can't literally

2) notmuch_message_get_{message,thread}_id promise never to return NULL,
   has no way to report errors.

I think it would probably make sense to say (if notmuch_database_reopen)
existed, that if you call notmuch_database_close, don't call anything
else except notmuch_database_reopen or notmuch_database_destroy.
