I was going to mention that.  I think it still needs some work --- which
I know how to do in this case.  N.B. you can test this with the line

[ x$ZSH_VERSION != x ] && emulate sh

at the top of the "code" variable.

However, I'm trying to work out what happens with the case

|  fn() {
|    (exit BEFORE-ACTION); -block here waiting for signal-
|  }

Should this exit with EXPLICIT-RETURN_VALUE or BEFORE-ACTION?  The
latter is easier to implement but my guess (without ploughing through
the standard) is EXPLICIT-RETURN-VALUE is right here.
