It says "to customize", so a user who just wants the default (which
does not exist but the comment does not say so) would be left
without instruction, no?

    In $HOME/.bashrc, PROMPT_COMMAND can be set to
    '__git_ps1 <pre> <post>', where <pre> and <post>
    are strings you would put in $PS1 before and after
    the status string generated by git-prompt machinery.
        PROMPT_COMMAND='__git_ps1 "\u@\h:\w" "\\\$ "'

or something?
