If the user could normally trigger this by using some action then
we should drop the emulate. But this can never be triggered directly
by the user. It is only provided for when tricky javascript is not
working. The ideal is that we get the javascript working so a longer
ugly name is probably a good thing.

Alternatives: pseudoXXX, simulateXXX
