Description

I was thinking it would be more usual to have programs run in the same console-tab as bdsh.

We will fix this after the implementation of consolefs, which will also permit redirection and pipes. Unfortunately, there is not yet an ETA on when that might happen, but I suspect in the not too distant future.

Even if task_launch() is introduced (to use the caller's console), we will still need to make almost the same modifications as we would if doing redirection .. so its best done at once as task_launch() begs for background operation, which needs redirection.

Console inheritance was implemented as of revision 4490. The other features (pipes and redirection) are not yet implemented, but we are now much closer to implement them.
