Right.  As I know how to implement the latter, and am unsure how to
best implement the former, I will move forward with a format only

   # X-Interactive: true

as a start.  From your comment, I recon that is OK with you.  If not,
patches are welcome to adjust it.

Will have to update the manual page with information about the new
header before the change is complete.

Happy hacking,
