Well, it doesn't really do much more than that. Some ports want user
interaction and instead try some default action if BATCH is set. There's also
the variant where a port could insist on user interaction by setting
IS_INTERACTIVE, then defining BATCH would skip this port altogether. The
first variety is pretty rare and I cannot remember any port of the second
Also, setting BATCH does not disable parsing OPTIONS, it just disables the
All in all, I don't think making an extra switch that just influences OPTIONs
would be a good idea. If setting BATCH causes trouble with a particular
(non-OPTIONS) port, that port should be looked at instead.
