Thanks Bart, and sorry I couldn't get round to publishing fixes
myself; I've had a lot on recently.

No harm in adding the promptsubst setting I guess ...

Yep ... bash2zshprompt is fundamentally flawed in that it tries to
semi-parse shell-script in a very simple way; hence any number of
things could probably go wrong.  However, it's an adequate, useful
starting point when converting prompts from bashprompt, as long as a
human checks the results and edits if necessary afterwards.

As I think I mentioned, I'll be cleaning up all the included prompt
themes when I get the chance.
