As a notorious shell user I of course started to see if up and down arrows could be used for command recall.

Just the up and down arrows could not work, because in Shell mode, you
are supposed to be able to move through the buffer, so the arrows need
to have their usual meaning.  But M-p or C-up and M-n or C-down work.
It is explained in `(emacs)Shell Ring'.

  Just a few elisp lines and it works. (But are not others looking
  for this?)

Looking for what exactly?
Using the up and down arrow keys to recall commands in shell buffers. My simple solution is just to let it work that way after the prompt and let them move around in the buffer otherwise. I prefer that because I am used to this recall commands this way at command prompts. (But that may be only me.)
