Check out Ipython. It's a pretty cool extension of the interactive python interpreter. It's perhaps most notable for its pysh profile, which is an attempt at seamlessly integrating your native shell commands with interactive Python.

I find that it's a pretty neat tool... I don't use it as my default shell, but I reach for it when I'm about to do some complicated system administration stuff. IPython makes it so easy to translate your interactive hacking into a persistent python scripts for later use that I have quickly amassed a collection of little helper scripts.
