[ceph-users] Does anyone use interactive CLI mode?

I only tried to use the Ceph CLI once out of curiosity, simply because  
it is there, but I don't really benefit from it.
Usually when I'm working with clusters it requires a combination of  
different commands (rbd, rados, ceph etc.), so this would mean either  
exiting and entering the CLI back and forth or switching between  
different terminal windows/tabs. Running all the necessary commands  
from the same terminal is much more comfortable and auto completion  
makes it even easier.
That's why I join the previous comments, I wouldn't mind if the CLI  
would be removed.
