comment Queue commands to last subshel even if one of them launches new shell
You're right about the problems with -i, and the version without this option doesn't work well either. I'd go for method 2 or 4 (2 is essentially an emulation of the bash --init-file option.)

By the way, the parentheses around cat mycmds /dev/tty are useless. Originally, I had two commands here; after deleting one of them I should also have deleted the parentheses.

It's called "prompt". Without -i or -l, a ksh that reads from a pipeline is not an interactive one (man ksh), which means in particular that there is no prompt.

Your use of "top shell" is slightly confusing. You mean the last subshell that you started, right?
