The auto-uploading behavior of http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh
makes it act like a spyware. This makes some users - including me in
the first try - astonishing and uncomfortable.

I'd like to fix it by
        1) adding user prompt
        2) defaulting to --no-upload and introduce --upload

Before going for the code, I'd like to ask for your opinions,
especially on (2).

Thank you.
