Hello, Akim, and friends.

I do not have a strong opinion on the matter, I did not need `-n' recently.
That option was defeating checking magic, with the goal of getting more
verbosity and less automatism, for when one wants more clues or explicit
feedback about a particular problem.  Most of times, I was editing the
generated checking script "by hand", so a bit less or bit more probably
does not make much difference.

Easily agreed! :-)

                                        Keep happy, all!
