Welcome back Mr. Thorpe, yes, but that would be
in-Emacs, right? If so, isn't the eshell better?

OT (or on topic):

I would like a shell prompt in Emacs, but not like the
IELM, instead as M-x, only the whole command and
arguments!

I did a thing on this with the help of an individual on
this list:

http://user.it.uu.se/~embe8573/conf/emacs-init/shell-cli.el

It works for most cases... Try: man ls, find-file
file.txt - only with replace regexp and such sometimes
it works, sometimes not, I think because of quoting.

Anyway such a feature should definitely be included in
vanilla Emacs. For long commands it is just so much
better to write it on one plate, instead of RET-ing it
away on bit at a time, only at the second argument you
have already forgotten what you were doing --- and, it
is much easier to correct mistakes on the whole line
than - yeah, how do you do that (repeat, but almost) in
Emacs if a command didn't work and you know it is
because of the second of third argument?

Just think you had to do that in the shell - write one
command/argument at a time, and RET for each?
