      Description

      Can detect this by isatty(0) and non-existence of ~/.mongorc.js if we create that file on first use.

      We can use this message to point first-time users to help() or tutorial(SERVER-4631), along with the documentation and the user group. If we stick a version number in .mongorc.js we can also print a "What's new" message after upgrades using a similar framework.
