Hi, just checking in. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to reply and ask about this bug. It's my first emacs patch and I'm not entirely sure if I'm following the process correctly here. I'd like to try answering your questions more succinctly.

Is there a "next step" at this point, or something that I can do to help with emacs in general?

I think we are miscommunicating, since your usage involves Emacs
reading from the terminal.  That is not noninteractive in my book.
What I mean by noninteractive is when stdin is not connected to a
terminal.  Your proposed patch affects that case as well, doesn't it?
