Right now, einhornsh is almost scriptable, but the resulting output leaves something to be desired:

evan@caron:~/stripe/einhorn$ echo reload | bin/einhornsh time-srv
Welcome evan! You are speaking to Einhorn Master Process 27289 (time-srv)
Enter 'help' if you're not sure what to do.

Type "quit" or "exit" to quit at any time
> Reloading, as commanded

In particular, it doesn't exit automatically if it gets an EOF from stdin, and it's pretty verbose.

It would be nice if einhornsh checked if stdin is a tty, and interact in a less verbose, more scripting friendly mode.
