OK, that would work.

It seems like a waste, though, we'll just reject it later... the
emulation I'm adding is the fdpic one.  It's a separate emulation
from the existing shelf only because the two are normally not
compatible; maybe that was the wrong choice?  BFD does make this
a bit easier with separate emulations.
