As much as I hate to do this, I think that this does make sense...

I feel the following change(s) [any one] needs to be implemented :

a) Use a common prompt for all. Either # or $ (as YosWink mentioned on
IRC) OR

b) Use $ for user commands and # for root commands.

Initially, it'll be quite a bit of changes/commits...but I think this is
worth it in the long run...
