On a tangent, I like fshell.el which has functionality not provided by
M-x shell RET plus clone-buffer:

C-u 42 M-x fshell RET goes to the *shell*<42> buffer, creating it if
it doesn't exist, yet.

For some reason or other, I like this much better than using some
switch-to-buffer interface for selecting the right buffer.
