UNIX shell in Python?

Hello.

I was thinking about writing a UNIX shell program using Python. Has
anyone got any experience on this? Is it even possible? I have
programmed a simple shell in C before and I came to think about how
perfect Python would be for parsing user input.

Not only *can* it be done, but it *has* been done and well: See IPython at:
