You can probably write a short wrapper script that is used as $FCEDIT to
run the equivalent of:

    emacs --eval "(setq-default default-major-mode 'sh-mode)" file1 file2 ...

That's a bit like "cheating", but it does work.  You are essentially
firing up Emacs with a default-mode of `sh-mode' for new files, which
is nice for editing shell history output.
