It may be useful to provide a terminal that appears on keypress and
disappears on another keypress. The terminal could be always in
floating mode. Then it would go like this:

Press key.
Terminal appears, floating above other windows.
Type your stuff.
Press key.
Terminal disappears.

I think it would be useful not to start a new terminal each time, as
by reusing the terminal one could use the history.

It is not clear to me how to make a window disappear and reappear
