Given that the goal is clearly to make a new "default" for all users
on their custom operating system, a more viable answer is probably
to enable the SYS_BASHRC feature in config-top.h and then set the PS1
variable in /etc/bash.bashrc (or whatever file they point it to) to
advertise their operating system to people who already run it.
