 I guess the problem is the ?|[+ inc], right?  That looks like a bug or at
least an ugly feature.  You can do this with piping in the following form

kwal +s"[+ inc]" +d barry.cha | mor

This works in the sense that it doesn't produce the ?|[+ inc]
The output goes into pipeout.cex.
However, when I tried to add an explicit name for the file output, I ran
into trouble.  Anyway, this would work for now and I will look into a bit
