Of course, it will be workaround, but IMHO current approach is mistake and 
effectively cuts down usefulness of start_precmd etc. things. Moreover, 
some single buggy script installed can ruin all following scripts. 
Previous separate subshell way does right thing, i.e. buggy script can 
ruin only its own subshell. Better to back this change out.
