Maybe I hit that myself as well. Shame on me for now reporting it
upstream to the talloc folks if I did.

Great news. I'm glad you got that working.

Shouldn't partial application be a pretty fundamental thing in a
functional language? How is it possible that this is new in emacs 23?
Anyway, current notmuch is only using apply-partially in one tiny place,
(for formatting the help screen). And even that's just to try to
generate a nicer-looking help screen than one gets with `describe-mode'.
So options here include at least:
1. Rewriting the code to not use apply-partially
2. Punting and just using describe-mode on old emacs.

And thank you for your interest. I hope you'll find a way to get it
working soon. And please feel free to share whatever you do come up
