How can we improve Power BI?

Power Query / M support for loading STDOUT of scripts/exes as a refresh-able data source.

It would be very handy to support running an exe or script, and grabbing its output (stdout and stderr) as a refresh-able data source in Power Query/M. I have several instances today where I run PowerShell scripts, redirect output to a file, and then load the file into a data model with Power Query / M. This feature would allow me to skip the intermediate step.
