The `ess-sas-interactive' function was more of a proof of concept.
Whatever you type in *shell*/*iESS[SAS]* buffer is executed by
SAS.  There are no bells or whistles.  Patches welcome ;o)

But, honestly, I don't use SAS interactively and I really don't
know anybody who does with ESS; usually interactive users just
use Display Manager (but this could be why ;o)  So, we haven't
invested much effort in this beyond just getting it to work.
`ess-sas-interactive' depends on fairly low-level ESS/emacs
functionality so, in theory, it will always work.  But, it might
not be much fun to use.
