It might be good to mention shell-mode explicitly -- I think in most
cases where a derived mode does something like that, it also sets the
prompt regexp to something suitable for that mode.

In general, is this variable even a useful thing for users to
customize?  Shouldn't they be customizing the corresponding variable
for a derived mode instead, as comint-mode is never used "raw"?

Maybe it should simply be a defvar instead of a defcustom.
