The last time I used it (about 5 years ago, csl.tjhsst.edu), we just ran
it in a screen session. IIRC, butc can prompt for input if it gets
confused, which makes being able to provide input rather useful.

That's not really a recommentation as a better way to do it or anything,
as that obviously has problems, and I'm not sure which is better to do.
But it worked well enough for us, at any rate.
