Diverting to R-devel.
After looking at more use cases, etc, I think I would like to
the change the default of 'ask'
from ask = dev.interactive(orNone = TRUE) # as of two hours ago
to ask = echo && dev.interactive(orNone = TRUE)
since all the cases I've looked which specify 'echo = FALSE'
would also want 'ask = FALSE'.
