In my imagination, it would be a touch-optimized way to issue commands. By checking your history file, the program could build a library of your most used commands. So maybe you tap a pleasantly large icon representing the server you want to connect to, it does the authentication for you, and then you get a pleasantly large list of your top 10 commands (scroll down for more). You click "apachectl", and then "restart" from the sublist that pops up. Add the "sudo" modifier and then tap a final pleasantly large button to issue the command.

For actual text editing, it could just drop you into something like ConnectBot or Terminal.
