there is a thing called Asking Too Much. Lol.

there's “shell”, and there's “term”. (and there's “eshell” and

each one is created to be optimal for some purposes.

Sure, you can add your personal customization on top of any to give
your “happy middle”. Though, unless you have a specific customization
question... there's no such as happy middle in the already 4 variants.

my personal q is what's the diff between term and terminal-emulator...
never spend time on it. I'm very happy with just “shell”. For any term
need, i switch to a “real” term emulator.
