I'm not convinced that this is the right approach.  In particular,
sending "--decrypt=stash" requires that the notmuch database is opened
read/write, which isn't always desirable.

(it'd be nice to be able to use notmuch-emacs to browse a notmuch
archive without locking the notmuch db or even needing read/write access
to the database)

perhaps we need a third setting for notmuch-crypto-process-mime besides
nil and t instead?
