gah, csh! The one-line if form won't work with aliases. You need to use the
long form. :( This should work, then:

if ($?prompt) then

(if not then I'll have to dig up whether aliases are any weirder in csh,
like in ksh/bash they don't take effect in the file in which they're
defined --- although that clearly is not the case here)

I actually do title setting as part of prompt setup, so it automatically
behaves nicely with non-interactive use, but that's a bit too much for csh
to handle (I use zsh).
