Well, not really cheating, but it certainly makes things easier. 
So several people want this - how would we give less score if the preview
is enabled? The score is ++'d, and unless we want to make this a fload
value, we can't easily give (say) only 0.95 instead of 1 full point. 
Any smart suggestions?

Adding a command line switch to switch on/off the preview shouldn't be a
problem, we just have to agree on which one's the default.  :)
