If it were `.` would we then always check if the prompt was a folder and then use the folder's name in that case? Or would it only apply to `.`?

As for `__curdir__`, it could work, but I don't know how easy would that be to remember or explain to new users compared to `.`?

My vote is to support `.` and make the rule that if you specify a folder it will use the basename automatically.
