Both. It is not so much 'fake' as it is more natural. A user is in effect
instructing the program to perform a task, not telling it about it.

I am not sure about French (I can count from 1 to 10 that's about it ;)
but in English (and as should be in Arabic), it should always at all
times be in imperative form. "fi3l amr".. they are to be taken as instructions,
no more no less.
