When you type "which echo", does it tell you "echo: shell built-in command" or /bin/echo?

The manual page refers to /bin/echo. The ZSH documentation includes reference to the '-e' flag to enable escape sequences, overriding any system-wide configuration that may be in place.

And remember: any time real life doesn't match your expectations, it's not real life that is wrong :)
