Very true. I'm not really complaining about the length of the script, it just violates the (for me anyway) the principle of least surprise. I'm so used to other scripting languages, I know it is something that would trip me up continuously.
That said though, you've implemented several quite good ideas and I do hope some of them get implemented in other shells. I note zsh also has lots of nice features but bash has an installed base that would make IE proud.
Anyway, printf the right solution, but you've got a way ahead of you yet.
PS. How do you handle $@ ?
