You're right, Uli. It seems that --non-interactive currently means
"don't prompt for authentication" and nothing else. It has no effect
on *any* subcommand's ability to launch $EDITOR. (That is, $EDITOR
is always launched, no matter what.)

Developers: should we document --non-interactive more precisely? Or
should we fail to launch $EDITOR in the presence of this option?
