I'm okay with adding this feature, but why turn it on by default right
away?  The original discussion of this bug says nothing about making
this the default behavior.  Perhaps it would be better to let users
use it first, and then turn it on by default if there's popular
demand?

Would a reasonable way to do this be to add a toggleable option to the defcustom for display-buffer-alist, and document this in async-shell-command's docstring?
