Spacemacs is not shell script that does something separate for itself
separate from Emacs as editor and environment.

If one writes a shell script that modifies the behavior of Bash shell,
and distributes such in public, then such shell script becomes new
combined work that modified Bash and is modified work.

When you program on your proprietary programmable calculator, that
issue is not related to free software, especially not because you have
not say that you are distributing it.
