--no-pager and --non-interactive do not mean the same thing. --non-interactive
implies --no-pager but not vice versa. I can very much NOT want a pager while
still wanting prompting for passwords. It would be a pain to have to type
--config-option config:helpers:enable-pager=no to get that functionality.

This does raise another point. This means we need to defer enabling the
automatic pager until we are actually ready to display output because the pager
will block prompting for passwords.
