This looks a lot like what I had in mind, yes.

} Comments?

I'm still undecided on (1) whether "-E" should either require or always
imply -L, and (2) whether I like "-c" better, as in

    emulate sh -c 'source file.sh'

As to (1), in what circumstances would you want to eval a command
under emulation and then leave the emulation in place?  If you were
going to leave emulation turned on anyway, why wouldn't you write
it as

    emulate sh
    source file.sh


(2) is a nit.  Mainly it affects whether emulate accepts only one argument
to be eval'd.
