If the instructions aren't part of a script, what exactly does the "bash
-e" step contribute? Start a new shell for running commands in, which
should exit any time one of them fails? The -e might be useful in an
shell script (i.e the #!/bin/bash case), but what's the point for an
interactive shell?
