Looks like everyone wants Vim's command
line to be a replacement for the shell..
How about ":shell"? ;-)

Perhaps, but vim's command line already has some shell-like features
For example, if you type:
The <tab> would actually expand $VIMRUNTIME into what it really
It's only intuitive that we expect completion of environment variables
The hard part is that if completion of environment variables were
added, it would conflict with the above, existing behavior.
