yes that would be possible, but I fail to understand why I can't start
emacs in a specific

IOW why can't I simply do ?

    $ emacs -f sh-mode FOO
Because you are doing it in the wrong order. sh-mode will apply to the
current buffer. Try

 $emacs FOO -f sh-mode

But ... - do you really want to do this? It means you are using a new eamcs
instance for every file.


So you mean that I need to this:

$ cat > emacs-ui-is-dumb.sh<<EOF
#! /bin/sh

file=$1; shift
emacs "$@" $file
EOF

and do:

$ export FCEDIT="emacs-ui-is-dumb.sh"

I do not think I mean that, but maybe if you try to explain your intention ... ;-)
