FWIW, "M-x shell" doesn't give you a proper terminal -- it only
emulates a dumb terminal which is good enough for the times that you
want a shell inside your editor. Not sure how much that simplifies
things, but at least it means you don't need to understand vt100
(much less xterm control sequences).

Integration w/CocoaTechTerminal would be interesting. :-)
