    <para>
      The <command>kea-shell</command> provides a REST client for the
      Kea Control Agent (CA). It takes command as a command-line parameter
      that is being sent to CA with proper JSON
      encapsulation. Optional parameters may be specified on the
      stdin. The request it sent of HTTP and a response is
      retrieved. That response is printed out on stdout.
