I do not understand quite. If you are in vterm and you define it as
let us say previous-line, can you really move your cursor up?

When I am in Xterm or if I am on console, C-n and C-p are in Emacs
bindings for shell like cursor up and down and those are normally
askin for previous or next history items. That is what I expect when I
am on M-x term or M-x vterm or M-x ansi-term as those are terminal

To move up and down I have to switch the mode M-x vterm-copy-mode and
then I can freely move up and down. Maybe you just bind
vterm-copy-mode to some function key when you need to select some
previous text.

On M-x shell I do not expect that, it is line oriented and I can move
freely. Only editor that I may use in M-x shell is emacsclient to open
up new frame, or simply ed.

I was working 1998/1999 in Copenhagen and coming back later year by
year. It is like my city, I feel good there.
