Automating the world one-liner at a time…
The PowerShell team is planning on adding the following verbs to the standard PowerShell verbs' list. Please review and send us any feedback you might have:

I would suggest to add Send for send email or interprocess messages. Otherwise the list seems good. Invoke is a little bit odd but is already in use, so don't invent another.
Looks good, except "Show" and "Hide". I'd have to actually see how they're implemented and used, but I'm wondering if there is a need for such verbs.
The "get"|"format" combination allows for simple, unit, cmdlets that are easy to learn, and that you can combine at will. A "show" cmdlet might do too much work at once. Or too little...
If you think that "hide" is the opposite of "show", and given the fact that "hide" is really just removing the display, you might think "show" is only displaying a data you previously acquired (which is "format"!). So "show" actually using "get" might be something that's done "behind your back" without you expecting it. Or maybe I'm thinking too much?
In addition to push and pop for dealing with the top of a stack, it might be a good idea to add Shift and Unshift (perl terms) to remove and add items from the other end of the list. Then you can implement queue as well as stack behaviour
"push" and "pop" have no meaning to me. I'm not a developer. Why not Add and Remove?
We already have ADD/Remove
Admins PUSH/POP directories for navigation.
