 This will prevent confusions while working inside a Sugar shell.  The PS1
 variable should change to identify it.

 Proposal: prefixing PS1 with '(sugar)', like:

 [humitos] [~/sugar]$ PS1=(sugar)$PS1
 (sugar)[humitos] [~/sugar]$

 Besides, we should save the old PS1 to be able to restore it when the
 user closes the "sugar" session.
