OK, but then there is something that is a bit confusing IMHO,

1- if you use command line your automatically get KSP_NORM_NO + KSPSkipConverged

1- if you call KSPSetNormType(ksp, KSP_NORM_NO), you do not get
SkipConverged. Perhaps KSPSetNormType() should be in charge of setting
SkipConverged()? Or is  this too much second-guessing the user?
