    Could you explain why you think this is necessary?  The current
    behavior, where M-x shell reuses the *shell* buffer, seems fine.

Just consider the situation where you use different shells
simultaneously with meaningful names.  For example, debugging an
application: shell-daemon, shell-mmi and shell-gdb.

If I want to restart the shell that is running in shell-gdb, I usually
Ctrl-D to terminate it and then I reuse the buffer.  Without the patch
I have to C-uM-xshell and then type shell-gdb.
