Originally my intention with opening the database was that doing the
same as notmuch itself does by default would be the default and most
natural thing to do (whether or not I succeeded at the time I have no
idea).  So reading .notmuch-config by default and using it correctly
seems fine to me.  Backwards compatibility is always tricky I guess, but
following notmuch's behaviour itself seems reasonable to me.

As a random data point I just checked my own use and I seem to be
passing the database path explicitly.
