Nice trick with print -S, thanks. I had in mind the
execute-without-simulating-input and plan to include it as option. Am
quite afraid to run things without people's eyes. I think that this
will be good when user starts to trust Zconvey, and firstly I should
trust it, after it is ran for few months at users' boxes.
