For my idea, it just to handle the query/yquery/nquery and simple commands.
After this command complete, set it back to auto can handle it.

Sorry for make you spend a lot of time on query and prec, I think
yquery and nquery didn't can be control when non-terminal is really a
I will try to make each of them have a set commands. And could you

I suggest each nquery or yquery have a set command together.
The more clear way I think is the query will tell user howto set it
non-terminal. Maybe it is too tangled.
