the $SHELL variable does not change when you run a subshell. but the 
shell is launching. take for example: if you run `sh` under a csh login shell, 
echo $SHELL reports /bin/csh, even tho you are running sh.

Real programmers don't document. If it was hard to write, it should be hard 
to understand.
