In my terminology "interactive use" of 9base would assume that you'd
run rc as interactive shell in your terminal and use its userland from
command line directly. But the actual main use case of 9base is just
to be used in scripts. rc from 9base isn't particularly "convenient"
for interactive use, as long as you don't run it from inside acme,
9term or rio.
