Using (spacemacs/default-pop-shell) we can emulate a terminal in emacs. But is there a way to pop a shell in a named buffer (say *buffer-name*) that will persist outside of our normal popped shell?

    In a default installation of Emacs, a user can create a new terminal / buffer instance by passing an appropriate argument to the function that creates the shell; e.g., (shell "*FOO*"); or, in the case of eshell: (let ((eshell-buffer-name "*BAR*")) (eshell)). I do not know about the so-called "pop a shell", which may be a strictly spacemacs thing. – lawlist Mar 5 at 1:16
