This is easy, but I'm in two minds about whether to trace back through
the shell's execution stack to find the nearest enclosing function, or
to decree that if you have "source", ".", or "eval" inside the function
then an "emulate" in those won't have this behaviour.  I've done the
latter because it was slightly simpler to implement, but I could be
convinced otherwise: after all, the emulate is not local to those other
commands so it's other effects propagate back.
