Makes sense. I'd reserve the name --interactive for greater interaction directly with the user, though. Besides, it clashes with --incremental for abbreviations. jumbo has other options starting with i anyway, but core does not yet, and I have no intent to be adding an option starting with i yet. Maybe --no-tty is a better name. What to do with existing builds of John, though? > This could then be evolved to include whatever Johnny might require of JtR in the future, while remaining a plain text interface and of possible use for other parties via scripting or wrapping(like Johnny is).
