That looks very appealing to me.

I would like to cut 6.23.01 as there have been a number of fixes
committed. But I'm wary of releasing the changed echo. Should I just
#ifdef NOTYET the \x and \u cases from parseescape() and comment out
the "$ echo_hex" test?

Btw, there is no $echo_hex variable, so the test seems misnamed and
misplaced in tests/variables.at.


Kind regards,
