(1) it's barely tolerable to add more action-at-a-distance by introducing a new variable; but adding *invisible* action at a distance is a language design antipattern. Having `-i` on the `source` command documents that new behaviour is expected.

What `invisible' action? You have to actually set the variable to use it.
