CVS uses "-m", but you already took that. I forget what BK used, but I
think it was "-Y" (with lowercase "-y" being "take message from file". Or
maybe the other way around).
Or if you want to be more CVS-like, use "-F", and accept "-" for stdin?
But I like "test -t 0" regardless. Very few editors are ok with non-tty
stdin, although I could imagine some disturbed individual having "ed" as
their editor and expecting to be able to pipe commands into it or
