In Unix, this option little more than an exercise, because most of the
shells are so functional.  However, there is a very functional and quite
useful Python shell for Windows called PyDOS that adds some very useful
things, as well as allowing direct Python statements.  It's especially
useful on Windows 98, since it adds path completion and other niceties that
are built-in to Win2K.
