    INPUT: new option for use with /E to pre-select the default value
    for overtyping. (Can do it now with KEYSTACK ! SHIFT-END, but
    that's clumsy at best, and in TCmd 9 it's downright ugly.)

    TYPE: new option, e.g. TYPE /X, to dump a file to stdout in hex,
    in a similar format to LIST /X.

    Commands or syntax to store/retrieve data within a batch file, like

    Syntax to pipe output from a command to DO, like FOR /F with
    USEBACKQ ? (can be done now, inelegantly, by putting the DO
    in a subroutine and piping to GOSUB)

    Don't disable colorization with DIR /F or DIR /B /S.

    Syntax for OPTION //optionname to reset an option to its default or
    undefined value. Perhaps something along the lines of
    OPTION //-optionname

    PDIR: Give the F field an option to quote the returned filenames,
    e.g. PDIR /(fpnw i) to display full long filename Wrapped in quotes,
    and file description. This is surprisingly difficult to do in
    current versions....

    User-defined inline comment characters? Perhaps something like:
    option //inlinecomment=/*
    set side=%@eval[%area ** 0.5] /* square root */

    VARS keyword for filename completion, to allow completing variable names:
    FileCompletion=rd rmdir cd chdir cdd pushd:dirs; set unset eset:vars;

    Can be done with external utilities, but would be helpful.
    Yes Please!
    This would be handy.
    I've often wanted this. In fact I sometimes enter a command as cmdname %foo to allow completion and then delete the % character.
