>mhlist is a counterexample.  And a good one.

It's obvious that was done because otherwise, you could never give a
consistent -part switch (it wouldn't make any sense if mhlist showed
a part number of 1, but in mhshow it was really 2).  This was the way
it was back when there was just a "mhn" command, and that just was
carried forward.
