[PATCH] emacs: Do not pass stderr of notmuch reply to JSON parser

Sometimes, notmuch reply outputs something to stderr, for example:
"Failed to verify signed part: Cannot verify multipart/signed part:
unsupported signature protocol". When this happens, replying in emacs
fails, because emacs cannot parse the error message as JSON.

This patch causes emacs to ignore stderr when reading reply from
