I keep wondering how difficult it would be to make a Python shell that
exposes all of Python but also includes some builtin commands such as
cd, mkdir, etc., that are just names bound to os.chdir, os.mkdir..., and
is smart enough to take a given command from the user and try to do a
os.system() on it based on the path. IOW, I'd love to have all of Python
available as my unix shell, while still doing shell-type stuff such as
traversing directories, launching applications, etc.
There's likely a project that does this already that I'm just unaware of.
