Really? I can see that 'line at a time' parsing would be a desired thing. But if
I can avoid the occasional problem by returning to a fresh prompt, it would
seem possible to have the same functionality via some other mechanism.
Mind, everything up to a sem has to be syntactically complete of course,
so none of the mayhem we were talking about a while back.

Aliases are one of those things like "setopt interactive_comments"
that actually changes the parsing.

torch% setopt interactivecomments; echo # this is not a comment
# this is not a comment

I've heard of that and I'm afraid to even think about what it does. Anyway,
these are good cautions about aliases.
