I think this makes sense as a code clarity, simplicity, and
internationalizability improvement, but don't like the precedent of
eliminating 'echo' for the sake of fork removal (unless we have
measurements showing it's worthwhile, which would be included here).

Maybe a simpler commit message could sidestep the issue?

        Use a heredoc instead of an "echo" for each line.

Please don't include this.  The audience for the commit message
doesn't have that commit to compare to.

If you want to preserve the original date, the way to do that is
a "Date:" field at the top of the message body.

        cat <<\EOF

would make reading easier since the reader then doesn't have to worry
about whether the text being cat'ed is indented or uses variable

Yes, nice.

With the above nits addressed, this change looks to be going in the
right direction.  Thanks.
