For consistency with C-x p v (project-vc-dir) that creates buffers named


shouldn't C-x p s (project-shell) create buffers with the same style:

'project-shell' already constructs buffer names using own style,
so it could switch to another style compatible with
uniquify-buffer-name-style, then construct buffer names
like "*shell*<myproject>" and allow uniquify to append
a numeric suffix <1>, <2>, <3>.
