The previous command can be run by just typing Return,
so I think we can keep slash command checking that at least one
setting was given.

I thought that implementing a command that would re-run the
previous saved_command_line would mean to just look/use 
But when a command runs, saved_command_line already contains
the line of the currently running command.
Slightly unexpected but not a big deal:
it is very easy to add previous_saved_command_line.
