Sorry for the delay in replying.

There is already a viable way to force a trailing space on "echo":

    set spc:hex 20
    echo -n Prompt:${spc} && read answer

I'm not keen on having "echo -n" always print a trailing space, because that 
wouldn't match the behaviour of "echo -n" in most shells.  Is the ${spc} trick 
sufficient for you?  If not, then we could think about some extra option for 

For "equals": I think that "iseq" or "isequal" would probably be a better 
name, for consistency with "isset".  What do you think?
