Indeed, it's intended to provide these features. At least the command
history should work on *any* system. I guess you already know how to
use the plugin - if not, here's a link:

If you have a b0rked or empty $PATH (when starting the panel), that
might explain that there is no auto-completion (because only
executables in $PATH are scanned). Other than that, I see no reasons
why it should not work.
