Yes, that was definitely the other reason I didn't want to call it
"--no-config".  :)

It's not always from a patch or commit. The most accurate along those
lines is "--from-input".

But in the greater context I think that's vague again; we don't know
which part of the command's operation is "genuine".

Perhaps "--exact-input" hits all of those. Or maybe "--only-input" to
match the other "--only".

I think I like that last one the best. It makes it clear that we are
looking just at the input, and not anything else. Which is exactly what
the feature does.
