Interesting, I'd forgotten about the module but this thread brought it from 
dusty backup tape back into my brain.  Part of the problem may be the generic name.

I just used it for a programming challenge and it worked quite well. :-)  The 
source is close to trivial, not a burden, and I found the module useful and easy 
to use.

Only nitpick is that the "repeat last action on empty line" is a poor default I 


p.s.  The bug listed above has the authors of cmd2 planning a 
simplified/compatible version that could become the next "cmd."
