This executes the contents of the () in a subshell, correct?

from man bash:
   (list) list is executed in a subshell. Variable assignments and
          builtin commands that affect the shell's environment do not
          remain in effect after the command completes. The return
          status is the exit status of list.

So everything but the pipe to tee goes inside the ()? I'm not trying to
be pedantic here, just hoping to clarify my own understanding.
