What I've found:
I tend to write stuff in Python over  bash or similar
shells from the standpoint of maintainability-and
avoiding a tower of babel(one language can do more).

This works because the classes for doing stuff largely
equivalent to bash are reasonbly mature in Python.
What Microsoft _appears_ to be doing with this stuff
is creating a next generation shell that takes
advantage of some of the .NET features. That would I
expect mean that to provide equivalent functionality,
Python would
need some new libraries/classes.

I'd really like to know your thoughts as you get more
familiar with MSH.
