The current convention is to use multishell-pop-to-shell. This includes
user stuff (like commands and customization variables) as well as
programatic stuff that you consider “official api” (like functions that
other packages can call, or vars that can be configured but aren't

In order to differentiate the functions and vars that are NOT
“exported”, use a double-dash (e.g. `multishell--bracket-asterisks').
(This is a relatively new convention, which is why a lot of places don't
use it).
