I don't think "satisfy" is sufficiently well defined to be useful in
this conversation.

There's clearly a tradeoff to be made between bug#20202 and bug#20484.

IOW, right now people who suffer from bug#20202 are not satisfied either.

The ideal situation (which I think is the one that we should strive for
in the long-run) is to have Emacs not touch the $EMACS var (which will
address bug#20202).  So the question is how to get there.

It will most likely involve a bit of annoyance to some users along
the way.
But I think replacing $EMACS by $INSIDE_EMACS in their ~/.zshrc, or
adding some magic one-liner in their ~/.emacs is a rather
minor annoyance.
