Well, that pretty much ensured I wouldn't get any work done this weekend.
I've tried to whip my "simple" prompt into shape.  I think it is almost there, but I am
having two difficulties that I am afraid I need to ask help with:


The first is that the prompt_simple_preview function doesn't work.

The second, and more fundamental one, is that I can't get the dynamic updating to work
unless I issue these six lines in the shell itself, in addition to the prompt function:

	typeset -a preexec_functions

	typeset -a precmd_functions

	typeset -a chpwd_functions

After I do that, it all works fine.  But I can't seem to do this from within a function, which leads me to believe I am missing something obvious (that I can't find in the manual -- sorry).
