I can understand that, but from what we've seen it looks like
run-mailcap simply is non-functional with base nmh (Conrad said it
didn't work; a lot of cases of "file not found").  And I was actually
under the impression that exmh used mailcap directly, rather than
the nmh profile entries.  I don't think a generic mailcap entry will
necessarily have the semantics that are expected from a nmh profile
