In-Reply-To: Message from Stephen Tell <tell@cs.unc.edu>  of "Mon, 08 May 2000 19:25:25 EDT." <Pine.GHP.4.10.10005081920100.29426-100000@rukbat.cs.unc.edu>

My $0.02:  if you have echo as a builtin, read deserves the same.

My other $0.02:  echo needs a sibling builtin, quote, to enquote it's
arguments so that they can be read by the shell.  Lisp got that right ages
ago.  Inferno got it right more recently.

Followups to the es list, I guess. :-)
