cshjunkiequotes means you can't have a newline embedded in a quoted
string, so both the eval in --zplugin-shadow-autoload and the long
help text in zplugin will break.

Well, it does more than that; it turns off glob qualifiers, changes the
way background jobs are monitored, disables =command expansion, enables
globbing in assignments and substitutions, and enables alternate loop
body syntax.  However, it's probably true that the only significant
parse-time (as opposed to execute-time) breakage of native zsh code is
for quoting.

} Maybe it could be possible to adapt zplugin.zsh to that option?

You could use a here-document for the help text in zplugin, and a single
line with semicolons for the eval body in shadow-autoload.
