Basic example of the jobs builtin being piped to other commands

The output of the builtin command jobs in /bin/sh cannot be piped to other
commands. With other shells like bash the output can be piped to wc or cat and
works as expected. With sh it appears all the output is lost.

Simply doing 'jobs | cat' in sh never outputs anything.
