Moving from CentOS 5 to CentOS 7, discovered that a test in a SysV
initscript for whether it is running interactively, instead of at boot
time, no longer works.

Under CentOS 7 / systemd, is there some way for the initscript to know

Generally "interactive" init scripts are not in any way supported under any
RHEL version and can't be done under systemd on EL7

What is it that it does and you are actually trying to achieve?

If it's a password or something like that it's possible to integrate with
the systemd-ask-password facility from a unit file, but it is quite complex
relatively speaking so it'd be useful to know the actual goal in mind
before going down this road.
