This (pre-)RFC is about having a command-line flag.

Having a command-line flag doesn't make the in-code slurping situation

Let's not derail this RFC by burdening it with other things that could
also be done. Separate ideas can have their own RFCs, and any interested
party is welcome to propose one.
