Elpy helps a great deal, when editing Python-Code. For example it let's you run the current file with C-c C-c in a new Window with a REPL. When i'm done with this, i can hit C-c C-k (elpy-shell-kill) to kill the associated shell process.

The process itself gets killed, however, the window stays opened until i manually close it with C-x k. Is there a way to close the buffer and let the buffer disappear altogether?

It looks like you have to define your own kill function like:

(defun my-kill () 
  (elpy-shell-kill-all t) 

It seems like it would be nice if that worked with a prefix arg, but it doesn't.
