Auto-Completion for Command-Line Options
Wouldn't it be great, if we could have auto-completion in the shell for command-line options as well! This could be done by having commands specify the command-line options that they can understand, in a resource file, that the shell could parse (when you hit a tab) and prompt you with probable matches. The command-line options could also be displayed as Intellisense displays them in Microsoft's Visual Studio.
