Sbt shell for build an import

While importing projects with recent versions of the plugin, I noticed a new option labelled : 

> Use sbt shell for build 

which was changed to 

> Use sbt shell for build and import (experimental) 

by the latest update. 

It sounds very very much like sbt server integration but I was unable to find any documentation about this option. Can anyone enlighten me ?

 

Thanks

I actually found the youtrack issue related to my question, if anyone is interested :

The option attempts to use the sbt shell as a server for running builds and project imports. It's marked as experimental since the communication doesn't happen over a proper server protocol (this will only be supported for sbt 1.0) but instead by literally pasting commands into the integrated shell and parsing the output.
