Now that you've been more specific about what you want, I have good news
for you. :)  In the current development version of portmaster I have
revamped the -G option so that it acts more like BATCH=YES in the sense
that it specifically skips all OPTIONS dialogs. Therefore you should be
able to accomplish at least this part of what you want with -G alone,
without using BATCH=YES at all.

I plan to commit the update very soon, hopefully this weekend. I'm
currently doing an extensive code review/whitespace realignment/etc.
