I have integrated a bash-style tab completion / gnu readline line editor, using code gleaned from an old Mono REPL and some hackery. The tab completion uses the native PowerShell 3.0 APIs for matching, so you still get rich completion of parameters, types, cmdlets as well as the nice EMACS bindings. PowerShell 3.0 ships with Windows 8, 2012 and is available downlevel for 2008/R2 and Windows 7."
