> Any interest in doing like os.get_terminal_size/shutil.get_terminal_size
If functions with two different behaviors are needed, I think the two functions
should probably have different names (e.g. get_shell() and get_user_shell()).
Otherwise, it may create confusion as to which to call (or which is being
called when reading code).
Moreover, it doesn't seem like the following guidance in the docs for which
get_terminal_size() to use would hold in parallel for the shell variants:
"shutil.get_terminal_size() is the high-level function which should normally be
used, os.get_terminal_size is the low-level implementation."
