I think the problem stems from what Thomas said: There's one shell
executing code, and another just sat around doing nothing. It's the later
one that the CustomPrompt class has a reference to.

On the PR, should I put the example code right there in the docs, where the
API is explained, or is there a wiki or something? Happy either way. Just
unsure what's correct these days.
