Consensus is hard.  For example, I personally I think tens of
thousands of lines of history is unnecessary no matter how much RAM
you have to throw at  it.

The other question that constantly arises is whether the goal is to
make the shell more helpful out of the box for relatively
knowledgeable users, or to make it more attractive to newbies.  If the
latter, is the most important thing to give it a flashy appearance?
In either case, where do you draw the line to "get you to 90%"?
