A user wanted to be able to disable the display of the value when
using "finish" -- but still have the value entered into the value
history in case it was useful later on.  Part of the rationale here is
that sometimes the value might be quite large, or expensive to display
(in their case this was compounded by a rogue pretty-printer).

This patch implements this idea.

Should new flags not be bool ?

Ordinarily, but in this case the address of one of these is passed to
add_setshow_boolean_cmd, which still takes an "int *" -- see the code I
quoted above.

Of course.  Sorry for the noise :)
