Yeah, it's confusing.  `mm-inline-message' is really an "internal" Gnus
function, while most of the other mm functions are more general.

Disentangling that mess is daunting, but for that function in
particular, I guess it wouldn't be that difficult to rewrite it to avoid
doing anything Gnus-ish unless we're in Gnus...  On the other hand, it's
a function to display a complete message, which leaves you with a buffer
that's pretty pointless unless you have a mail reader to interact with
it afterwards.

So perhaps it should just be renamed and moved to Gnus?
