RE: Option to disable "Hit ENTER or type command to continue" messages
- I'm referring to the ':silent' command. The prompt in question will still
appear once you've exceeded all other settings (i.e., set ch). The help is
referring to the intermediate prompts. The final one is still there unless
you use some sort of 'trick' like syntax/hitest.vim does.

*** Under ":help :silent" it is said (about 25 lines down) that executing a
*** command with the ":silent" prefix _will_ disable the hit-enter
*** prompt. But
*** it is a command (:silent), not an option ('silent').
*** An other way to make hit-enter prompts less frequent is to

*** default of 1);
*** but the hit-enter prompt will still appear if more lines are
*** output than the
*** value of 'cmdheight'.
