Fix "Allow use of Gnus search groups as notmuch path: search term"

* lisp/gnus/nnir.el (nnir-notmuch-filter-group-names-function):
  Default to nil -- getting correct behavior requires user
  intervention too often to have this enabled by default.
* lisp/gnus/nnir.el (nnir-run-notmuch): If the user has turned this
  on, then also hardcode `gnus-group-short-name' as a filter -- things
  will never work without it. Also move leading space to before the
  opening parenthesis.
* doc/misc/gnus.texi: Document option.

A function used to transform the names of groups being searched in,
for use as a ``path:'' search keyword for notmuch. If nil, the
default, ``path:'' keywords are not used. Otherwise, this should be a
callable which accepts a single group name and returns a transformed

instance, dots in group names must be converted to forward slashes: to
achieve this, set this option to

"Whether and how to use Gnus group names as \"path:\" search terms.
When nil, the groups being searched in are not used as notmuch
:path search terms. It's still possible to use \"path:\" terms
manually within the search query, however.
When a function, map this function over all the group names. By
default this runs them through `gnus-group-short-name', and it is
recommended to use this transform, at least. Further
transforms (for instance, converting \".\" to \"/\") can be
added like so:
When a function, map this function over all the group names. To
use the group names unchanged, set to (lambda (g) g). Multiple
transforms (for instance, converting \".\" to \"/\") can be added
like so:
