Without this echo wont interpret newline characters.

-e enable interpretation of backslash escapes

Seems legit, looking at the bit of code directly below it which does use -e. As long as it doesn't generate weird bugs on say , which would need to be \ etc.

My motivation for this patch was that the generated init file was 'unescaped', and thus unusable. I suspect many others have the same problem.

Is this still being considered?

Yes, please keep this open as I'll merge in the next days. Sorry for the delay.
