+Notmuch is an answer to Sup. Sup is a very good email program written by
+William Morgan (and others) and is the direct inspiration for Notmuch.
+Notmuch began as an effort to rewrite performance-critical pieces of Sup in
+C rather than ruby. From there, it grew into a separate project. One
+significant contribution Notmuch makes compared to Sup is the separation
+of the indexer/searcher from the user interface. (Notmuch provides a
+library interface so that its indexing/searching/tagging features can be
+integrated into any email program.)
+This requires xapian-core.
