I can't agree, Heiko : it may well take more than
one attempt to rectify the problem, and I would
like <Return> to signify "Try again, with original
filename" ad infinitum.  Of course, a non-<Return>
answer such as Ctrl-C, Crtl-D, Ctrl-Y, Ctrl-Z,
<Break> must remain available and should force
loop exit with an error.
