"invasive" in the sense that it impacts indirectly more callers, but are
there really cases where "echo" is needed when calling "say"? Aren't
there other potential bugs when arbitrary strings are passed to "say",
that would be fixed by using printf once and for all?

The patch would look like the one I did in 89b0230a20 (Wed Aug 7 2013,
die_with_status: use "printf '%s\n'", not "echo").
