I'm glad you like it!  But the change to the prompt code is really quite
minor: the prompt function sets the helper functions and such rather
than the calling code.  The rest of it is (a) changing defvars and
defuns to defines, and (b) going through and changing the way the prompt
function is called where it's called.

Hmm, it occurs to me that you may be talking about the stuff that I use
the prompt function for.  The main thing is the prext.jl script (on the
wiki) that lets you access menus via prompt.  It treats a menu tree like
a directory tree.  So I can enter "Customize/Appearance" into a prompt
dialog, for example.  Or I can create a menu of hosts to ssh to and tab
complete on that.
