[BTW, Luc has already agreed, in another message, that default should be
 on, with ielm turning locallying disabling it.]

Some examples that I use frequently are `apt-get' (the debian package
updating program), and `lftp' (an ftp program).  Both of these use BS
and CR (actually, I think apt-get uses only CR, whereas lftp uses only
BS) to update progress displays.  Such usage is fairly common (for
instance most value-added ftp clients implement it).

Would you like fries with that?
