Experimental Python-based shell

The chief benefit besides the searching, so far, is that you can use Py3k
mixed with shell commands as the scripting language--so script in Python
instead of bash.
When using Python for scripting, Python lines are indented by an extra tab
(or four spaces) while shell-like commands are not indented. So:
cjsh> for index in range(10):
----> echo %(index)d
Echo could (and maybe should) be a built-in, but it isn't. The output is
os.system()'ed to bash, which echoes based on a command that includes the
value of a Python variable. The implementation is a bit crude, but it is
I have other things on the agenda, like making it able to run scripts and
doing fuzzy matching, but for now those are the main two attractions.
