Rename Package Manager Console to Shell

Package Manager Console is a Powershell window that is used by many different tools aside from Nuget/Package Manager. For instance, scaffolding for ASP.NET and Migrations in Entity Framework, and probably more things in the future. New versions of the Package Manager GUI will make it less and less necessary to use the shell for nuget purposes, so it makes less and less sense to refer to it as the "package manager" console. Just call it Shell (or Console or Powershell Console if you prefer).

    VS Code has "Integrated Terminal" and VS has "package manager console" but the usage of the "package manager console" has really grown closer to Shell/Integrated Terminal. It would also be great if PM> didn't hide the current working directory.
