I really love the Magento command-line tool, however I would like to see the command line tool integrated in Linux / Mac. By doing that we could extend the native functionalities and be able to use the magento command with those new commands from any project. Problems Right now, if you want to add new commands to manage your Magento 2 installations, you have to add a new module with the code for the new commands to the project. So, if several community members contribute with different commands, the result is that you have several modules containing all those commands. For the same reason that the item above, if you create new commands to add new cool features, the code for those features should be added to every single Magento 2 project (as a result, more code in the codebase of those projects). If the command-line is included in the Magento 2 codebase (in the projects), it's very hard to extend and maintain for the reasons mentioned above. Magerun2 is the best example of how powerful and useful is a global command-line tool: https://github.com/netz98/n98-magerun2. Suggestions Since I've been contributing with the community by creating a command-line tool for Mac (https://github.com/guarinogabriel/Mac-CLI), I have a couple of suggestions to improve the Magento 2 command-line tool: Release it as the Magento command-line tool in Github: It could be a separate project in Github, so the community can focus on contributing specific features/improvements to the CLI. Make it global: The Magento installer could install the tool in the /usr/local/bin/ folder to make the command-line tool global in the system. Auto-complete features: The perfect example of this is the SAWS command line tool (https://github.com/donnemartin/saws): Magento 2 could use the global magento command-line tool: One of the goals of the Magento 2 command-line tool is to replace the shell scripts from Magento 1 and use commands in Magento 2 instead. Those commands could be appended to the global command line tool. So, if you run the magento command from the project folder, the commands from that project will be appended to the global commands. I'd love contributing with this idea by creating a pull request and start working on the global command-line tool if the Magento team and the community like it.

In some custom modules the IP address of the current visitor is required (e.g. for GeoIp lookups or access control). The class \Magento\Framework\HTTP\PhpEnvironment\RemoteAddress provides this feature, however it is not marked as stable. In order to be able to use the class within third party modules, it would be nice to have a method that is blessed with the @api annotation.
