I'm sure it's possible to build a postinstall script that would circumvent
this mechanism. However, this is the case when it's in the interest of
the maintainers to cooperate with setup.exe. So, if you, for example, use
a shell in which functions aren't traced with the -x flag, put a "set -x"
inside each function.
P.S. bash does propagate -x to function execution unless specifically
turned off inside functions.
