Opposite of wait flag

Often I want to pipe some output into subl, but I don't want the subl command to --wait. However, since --wait is implied when the input is stdin, there is no way to turn this off.

There should be an option to explicitly turn the option off, even when reading from stdin.  Either call this --nowait, or perhaps -r / --read, or perhaps -p / --pager.

Meanwhile, I use an ZSH alias:
alias subl_nowait='subl &!'
