As of PS4, the output from Get-Help looks very much like a Unix manpage in the 1970s: no colors, no underline, no bold (only some with -ShowWindow)...
In 2014, I would expect formatted output -- see attached files to get... the picture ;-)
The ability to have Get-Help output to a browser window, from where one would be able to print, would also be nice (while you're at it, add the capability to output HTML and/or RTF that can be pasted e.g. into a Word document).
