I allready did this.

In principal a good idea, but it is done in a script. At the moment I
am the only one using the script, but you never know, so I like to
keep the dependicies as low as possible.

I am also thinking about:
    emacs  --eval '(shell)' --eval '(rename-buffer "shell")'
or
    emacs  --eval '(shell)'\
           --eval '(rename-buffer "shell")'

I think that is more clear.
