There are external shells for Drops, but they are mostly used for
interacting with the L4 system, not the inner workings of L4Linux. Have

pkg/little_shell (I don't know if this is available externally)
pkg/l4vfs/term_server (a basis for little_shell)
And then there are L4Linux tools to start L4 tasks:
