ttyv4 is the holographic shell otherwise mentioned. It only has access to
built-in commands (such as echo, cd, etc)
It's really limited and so far, haven't found a use for it yet. I think it
was a "new thing" when sysinstall was out and was useful back then. Since
then, we've kept it and just haven't done much to it.
If you find a use, share it.
