Unfortunately it asks for confirmation to overwrite but doesn't have a
-f switch.  We wrote it when the nb didn't exist and we could assume
that stdin was always available, but that's not true anymore.  Now, we
should instead add a -f switch, and detect the absence of raw_input
and instead give a nice error message that suggests -f when used from
the nb:
