I probably meant "tty1" vs "tty2" etc ...

the docstring says 

,----[ C-h f terminal-list RET ]
| terminal-list is a built-in function in `C source code'.
| 
| (terminal-list)
| 
| Return a list of all terminal devices.
| 
| [back]
`----

but the function returns 

,----
| (#<terminal 1 on /dev/tty>)
`----

in my case although Archlinux with systemd has several terminals
pre-initialized AFAIK. 

So this `terminal-list' is just about M-x term from within Emacs and
then

,----
| To make multiple terminal emulators, rename the buffer *terminal* to

| mode.
`----

I guess.
