  "isremote" means that?  Or "isremote 0" (which to me means "!isremote")
means that?

  I really don't understand this statement; ISTM that a simulator "can execute
on the local host just like any program".

  That's a reasonable point, but I wouldn't know how to draw any inferences
from it without further study.

  Oh, yes, I see that now.  Well, in that case, "isremote" is AFAICT not used
*anywhere* except in a line of verbose output, where its value is reported.
And I want my output to claim that the simulator is not remote.

  I'll try a testrun with and without it and see if it makes any difference.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
