Removing the quote distinction?

Parent article: Fish - The friendly interactive shell

fish is "friendly" and for beginners printf syntax isn't.

I'd feel more comfortable with variable expansion in quoted strings so that

% set file ~/mail/sent
% echo "File is set to $file"
File is set to ~/mail/sent

to echo $file you escape it
% echo "File is set to \$file"
File is set to $file

Meh. You are turning my own arguments against me. That's cheating! ;-)
