Ok, I'm convinced that people use named pipes w/rc! It will be no
problem to leave it as-is.

Well, NOJOB *forces* sh-like semantics for backgrounding, but those
semantics are used by default when the SIGTT* signals are undefined:

#if !defined(NOJOB) && defined(SIGTTOU) && defined(SIGTTIN) && defined(SIGTSTP)

I'm asking whether anyone forces NOJOB on a job-control Unix.
