Easy, make it "emacs -2021", then in a few years when we decide that's
no longer modern looking we can add "emacs -2023", and so on forever.

Personally I dislike the idea of turning it on with a command line
option, I'd rather we just give them a customize option linked from
the splash screen or whatever, merging two competing proposals.
