whether any particular UI component is appropriate or useful in a
script has probably changed over time -- i suspect what people
are willing to script has become far more sophisticated over the
lifetime of mh.

if it's important to be able to ignore a user's .mh_profile during
execution, then a (new?  maybe it exists already) "-noprofile" option
would seem like the right implementation.  or, what i think already
exists (though i haven't tried it):
    MH=/dev/null <program-name>
