A discussion has arisen between myself and a trusty beta tester over
the `-s' flag.  This flag was new (and undocumented) in rc-1.5betadev1;
it causes rc to put any arguments into $* (instead of treating them as
files to be read); rc then reads from standard input.

At present, `-s' implies `-i', and we suspect that this is wrong.  I
would be interested to hear from anybody who is actually using `rc -s'
(or `sh -s', for that matter), since we're having trouble coming up with
any realistic examples.

Any comments appreciated.


P.S.  I've received a small amount of feedback on rc-1.5b4, which
has all been positive.  More feedback (especially if you've run into
problems with it) is always welcome!
