STDIN - Almost never.  But you should be able to do whatever you want
with something like


BTW, it is a pity that almost-never used `RemotePort' (sp?) now
conflicts with often-needed `ReadLine', so 

  env PERLDB_OPTS=R=0 perl -d readline-application

would not work any more, you need ReadLine=0 (nowadays one can through
in C=7 as well).

  env "PERLDB_OPTS=ReadLine=0 C=7" perl -d readline-application

...  What about changing it to DebugTTYport?
