That's a nice one-line summary of the commit that says "what" the patch
does just fine. But the commit is missing the rest of the commit message
that should give the "why".

What's the motivation of the change? Is something perhaps broken without
this? Or is this a preparation for something else that will be coming
along in a future commit?

From looking at the next commit, I assume this is to enable the
"(require 'notmuch-show)" that is being added subsequently. So I've just
noted that.

I added similar treatment to the other instances of files named

Thanks. That's a good fix.

The above are all pushed.

This is definitely a nice improvement in modularization. But there are
some aspects of doing multiple-file emacs code that I'm unclear on.

If I apply this patch as is, then when compiling the notmuch-show.el I
get the following warnings:

  In notmuch-show:
  notmuch-show.el:969:34:Warning: reference to free variable `notmuch-command'

  In end of data:
  notmuch-show.el:983:1:Warning: the following functions are not known to be
      defined: point-invisible-p, mail-header-extract-no-properties,
      notmuch-select-tag-with-completion, union, intersection, set-difference,
      notmuch-search-show-thread, mm-display-parts, mm-dissect-buffer,
      notmuch-save-attachments, notmuch-count-attachments, notmuch-reply,
      mm-handle-type, mm-display-part, notmuch-fontify-headers

I can eliminate a few of these by copying the various require calls from
notmuch.el to notmuch-show.el, but that still leaves problems for all of
the functionality defined in notmuch.el and referenced in

  In notmuch-show:
  notmuch-show.el:973:34:Warning: reference to free variable `notmuch-command'

  In end of data:
  notmuch-show.el:987:1:Warning: the following functions are not known to be
      defined: point-invisible-p, notmuch-select-tag-with-completion,
      notmuch-search-show-thread, notmuch-save-attachments,
      notmuch-count-attachments, notmuch-reply, notmuch-fontify-headers

Does anyone know the right way to fix this? I'd like to get the output
clean as I plan to move the compilation of the emacs code from "make
install-emacs" to "make", (made conditional on a check for the presence
of emacs by configure).

So I haven't merged this commit yet.
