command count?

The counter starts at 1000, every time you execute a command it gets bumped up by one. Not sure if I have any real use for it yet.

Also, the entire prompts color is set to green or red depending on the return value of the command you just ran.

Green = good return val
Red = error return val

Yeah I'm confused what you would use a command counter for?

@jterrace, you are right, it is a waste of space. Gone
