The documentation isn't so specific. It simply says:

          --non-interactive : do no interactive prompting

I'm not sure about that.

The reason that I ran into it was that I was using it in a scripted
environment where it was appropriate to use the editor (i.e. I was
sitting there ready to type a commit message), but the script wasn't
attached to a TTY, so printing something to stdout/stderr and expecting
to be able to read an answer back from stdin is wrong.

My expectation was that this would be covered under by "do no
interactive prompting."
