How long were you using DM (or is it PM?) in Aegis from Apollo Domain? Probably this one built up your bad habit (decades ago?).

I'd like to suggest to use eshell in perhaps an extra frame, which then can be as small as one line, I think, without tool-bar, without scroll-bar, possibly some hook or eshell init file can switch off all this decoration. It will give you access to a lot of Emacs Lisp functions (or even all?) – and a UNIX shell with all the typical UNIX tools!

The mini-buffer is kind of a process that needs to get launched every time in order to accept some input. The launcher is M-x. IMO eshell can be such an always-on mini-buffer (substitute) ...
