I should have been more precise. I'm calling it indirectly via
mm-display-part, which is useful in the case where someone attaches a
message/rfc822 part to their message. In principle notmuch can (and in
the general case does) render the part directly, but in certain odd
fall-back cases it is handy to give a visual representation of the part
in the buffer without parsing etc.. ourselves.  So the user does have a
mail reader, namely notmuch. In fact I can almost make it work by
forcing the buffer back into notmuch-show-mode after calling
mm-display-part, but that has some side-effects I'd prefer to avoid.

Thanks for thinking about my (weird?) use-cases,
