tcpdump is the only thing we use the shell for. Juniper are gradually
introducing cli commans which remove the requirement to use the shell.
Maybe sometime in the future non-root user ID's will have shell access
removed. It's probably a judgement call as to whether shell access
causes support pain and thus removal of access to the shell would have
some fiscal benefit.

I know that Juniper is based off of BSD and rides off of it.  I also know
that you can even access the BSD shell.  I guess I'm wondering why you would
do this?
What would you be doing in the BSD shell if you were to access it?  Not just
for fun I suppose?
