Feature Request: Add Windows Subsystem for Linux to Local Shell

Hi,
the "local Shell" feature introduced with 8.7 is really asome but would be even better if you could add an option to also access the "Windows Subsystem for Linux" through it.

If you already have WSL installed and bash.exe is available on your windows system, then all you have to do is point SecureCRT to bash.exe.
If you want bash to be your default Local Shell in SecureCRT, edit the Default session (Options > Edit Default Session...), set the protocol to Local Shell, and in the Local Shell category, enter the path to bash.exe -- then set your protocol back to SSH2. When prompted, make sure you apply the change to ONLY the Default session.
