… if that’s *really* necessary we can post-process in doc/build.scm, but
I think there’s little value in showing a different prompt.  While I
have seen it elsewhere, it’s not a universal convention to use “#” as a
root prompt and “$” for an unprivileged prompt.

If we want to clearly indicate that this is done by the root user I
suggest including “su -” at the top of the listing.
