It seems fairly self-contained and could have it's own option. typeset
isn't a builtin. posix compatibility options aren't really improvements
but someone might prefer this behaviour. But I don't have a strong
view - whatever you think is good.

I'm fine with that but I wouldn't especially object to DECLARED or
whatever it was before. Some other ideas:

Was there anything else outstanding like (t) output perhaps?
I don't feel strongly about either of these naming issues and would be
happy for this to move forward regardless of the outcome on them.
