I don't see how that's relevant to this issue.
mm-shr _always_ consults gnus-inhibit-images and gnus-blocked-images,
using them to override shr-inhibit-images and shr-blocked-images.
If mm-shr is supposed to be a general purpose facility for use by things
other than Gnus (?), this seems obviously wrong.
Surely Gnus should make whatever buffer-local shr-related settings it
needs in its Gnus buffers, and the MH-E folks can do the same, rather
than hard-coding Gnus-specific behavior in mm-shr?

(I'd actually say that the use of mh-cl-flet in mh-display-emphasis
seems like the wrong solution as well. MH-E should rather have asked
Gnus to provide an option so that article-emphasize can do what they
