Ah.  I keep forgetting about that.

} And I hope there are no calls

} NUMERIC_GLOB_SORT for me when I was testing the patch that made that

Completion/Base/_arg_compile:91:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Builtins/_popd:8:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Builtins/_zftp:7:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Commands/_correct_filename:16:emulate -LR zsh
Completion/Commands/_read_comp:25:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Core/compdump:16:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Core/compinit:58:emulate -L zsh
Completion/Core/compinstall:28:emulate -L zsh
Completion/User/_mailboxes:3:emulate -L zsh

} Also, `emulate -L zsh' resets some other options which are tested or
} used in the completion code, e.g.: extended_glob, magic_equal_subst,
} and pushd_minus.

Hrm.  Obviously "emulate" shouldn't be used in functions that call other
functions that might not want it.  Slightly icky thought:  Maybe we need
a variant of "emulate" that gets undone on *entry* to a called function
as well as on exit from the calling function?

I had more to respond to, but I just saw Sven's "should we..." message,
so I'll stop for now.
