> The point is that traditionally, we have worried about the interactive
subsystem vs. the batch subsystem. Now, due to IBM's restrictions on
interactive jobs, we have to look at what the system is going to limit due to
being classified as interactive. So having a display file is one factor, but
not the only one, as the list above shows.

mean? or
"screen scrapers"? is a Virtual Terminal interactive? I don't think so.
