imcs reminds me of some instant messaging blah, and I don't like the csi
either for obvious reasons.

I think following the tradition and adding the `sh` suffix is a really
good idea because the thing by its nature targets unix-savvy people and
not the Visual Studio community. And unix-savvy people know very well
what a shell is good for.

So yeah, I vote for Juan's second idea: csish. It has 701 hits on
Google, I'm pretty sure a wiki page on go-mono.com will be #1 soon.
