      Module will successfully find the PowerShell 6 executable and install modules. 

      The module will handle systems that may have more than one version of PowerShell 6 installed. 

      The module will properly decide whether to use the Powershell.exe executable or pwsh, whether it is being run on Windows or *nix/Mac.

      Module allows the user to configure the manner in which PowerShell 6+ modules are installed. Options might include things like install scope, install path, or other options that determine which versions of PowerShell on the system will be able to leverage the module to be installed.

    Description

      The module should fully support PowerShell 6 to the extent that this is possible on the various platforms supported.

      Currently the module does not understand properly that modules imported with one version of PowerShell 6 are not visible to other versions of PowerShell 6. 

      This may require a spike ticket to determine the best course forward around an awkward designed decision by the PowerShell team.
