On most of cmdlets bringing changes to environment the said switch is there. On "harmless" like cmdlets Get-Something, for instance, it is not present. Thanks.

Correct, it does not have the said parameter. We'll track this as a requirement for one of the next product versions. Thanks.

Whatif is missing on some more action oriented cmdlets, like Eject-VBRTapeMedium, Export-VBRTapeMedium, and Import-VBRTapeMedium. I would not call those "harmless" :-) And get-help says they accept the commonparameters.
Any idea when '-WhatIf:" will be implemented for all cmdlets?
