Pkg vs. shell REPL-mode



I just noticed how the Pkg REPL-mode is “sticky” in the sense that after issuing a command in it you remain in Pkg mode, while the shell REPL-mode is not. I’m curious if the inconsistency is deliberate, and if so what the rationale is?


Help mode is not sticky either (which is good, imo). Shell mode could be sticky, imo.


Agreed. Would be nice if there were flags you could set to change the default behavior as well.


I have submitted a PR to make the shell mode sticky.
