For two states:
* for being executed (beware, it is ***important***)
It does lend importance, but that's also the line continuation marker for
"comment". Would that be a problem?
Argh. Indeed, even if people seldom type C comments in psql interactive
Remaining ASCII characters I can thing of, hopefully avoiding already used
So, maybe consider these ones:
"+" for it is "on"
"`" which is a "sub-shell execution"
"&" for "and the next command is ..."
/ for not (under the hood, and it is opposed to *)
+1, I was going to suggest '/' for a false state, with two possible
metaphors to justify it
1. the slash in a "no" sign ("no smoking", ghostbusters, etc)
is just words, not code)
