Update of bug #30328 (project make):

           Triage Status:                    None => Medium Effort          


Follow-up Comment #1:

Is it really true that this is an issue?  The only "echo" commands that can
be sped up are ones that appear on their own line in the recipe.  Any echo
command that is on the same logical line as other commands would be passed to
the same shell along with the other commands.

Also, the suggested code is not sufficient: it doesn't deal with quotes, and
it doesn't manage common options to echo (e.g., "-n") or special characters
(e.g., "c").  Any built-in echo replacement must operate identically to the
native echo--of course this is not really possible because echo is not
standardized but at the least we should support quoting, which IS
well-defined, plus any POSIX-required options.
