Taking them on the command line is a security hole as ps(1) can show you all
the details of the command line someone else used. I'd probably read them off
stdin (so you can pipe them in). Prompt for them first if stdout is a tty, or
maybe write the prompt to /dev/tty if stdout is not a tty but stdin is.
