`python-notmuch2` contains the new binding that uses CFFI.
`python-notmuch` contains the "old" binding which, I guess, will be
deprecated at some point.

There's not much in the documentation or the mailing list about why they
decided to work on the new binding, though.

Actually, I have to admit that I have the same reserve about using
inheritance. But it's totally fine with me to use it as a mechanism
to reduce code duplication.
