How does Microsoft ditching CMD affect supermodel?

EDIT: Nothing is gonna happen: the command line will still be in windows 10 upcoming updates and bat files and dos scripts will work just fine. It's just an aesthetic modification but the article that I read was written in such a poor and clickbait way that it gave the impression that they were discarding it altogether.

I fell for it at first because, well, it wouldn't be the first time a terribly idiotic decision is made, like ditching the start menu (only to realize how stupid it was to dispose of it and patch it back)...

Old text:
I don't know if you heard about it, but, apparently, Microsoft is going to discard the old command line (CMD.exe) in favour of powershell.
Does this affect supermodel, beign it purely based on commands to run?
I know many people here create their own .bat files to get supermodel to do what they intend. Do those files run in powershell too?

There's no way they can ditch cmd any time soon. And anyway, at some point, Supermodel will have a proper wx-based GUI.
