So there is the case. My zshrc can be found here. Credit to who-t for the git-branch display code, the shell is the well-known ‘petes-shell’ the synergy related stuff is from synergy+ and the kde functions are from the kde project to simplify building kde.

[BTW, if you saw my rant on reddit about BoycottNovell – I was perfectly serious about it. BN, don’t link to this post or else you will see mono bindings to compiz].
