Other thoughts:

We're probably approaching the point where we could have a bash emulation
mode too; so far, that would be sh emulation but with aliases turned on,
but there are a few other options (such as `globdots' and `promptsubst')
that could be left unchanged when `emulate bash' is used (as opposed to
being turned off as they are when `emulate sh' is used).  I'm not sure
exactly what's the right thing to do with such bash options, though.

Maybe the option should be called `aliases' rather than just `alias'?
