I just tried M-x term and didn't like it.  Normal Emacs keystrokes were
no longer available, so I couldn't e.g. copy text and yank it elsewhere
the same way as before.  The Info mode says C-c C-k turns on line mode
which makes it more like M-x shell, but that seems to have been
overstating the case.

I'll stay with M-x shell.  That's still basically Emacs, unlike M-x term
which tries not to be.
