Fixes #8290.

Do we need a test for this? I think it's pretty unlikely that someone will regress this unintentionally.

Shell: Don't be confused by SyntaxErrors thrown by command execution.
Apply the check for a SyntaxError indicating an incomplete command only
to the ECMAScript translation and parsing of a command and not to the
execution, following the example of Node's defaultEval function.

Fixes #8290.

Add TODO about Node.js 6 `repl` changes.
Just a note to revisit this/clean-up in Node 6 as the `Recoverable` is now exported from Node 6's `eval` and this is no longer necessary.

This is awesome! Thanks for looking into this, @mattmccutchen!

Just to provide insight to anyone peering in: Some of this repl custom eval functionality has been properly exposed and documented in Node 6.x, so we'll need to change this again at that time, but this seems mostly on par with those new docs already (except for us capturing the RecoverableError constructor ourselves instead of using the eval.Recoverable which is now available).

Re: Tests. I think all regressions are unintentional and I'd like to get tests for this eventually, but seeing at there is not currently a harness in place for the shell (an interactive test is necessary, perhaps) and this is actually an improvement to an existing deficiency, we might be willing to forgo a test for this. That being said, I'll leave this for more "LGTM"s as a precaution.

I agree with @abernix - since there isn't currently a defined automatic testing process for the shell, LGTM! Thanks @mattmccutchen!
