You might want to do a single "@echo off" at the start of the .cmd file.
Echoing every command in the .exp isn't very helpful: you don't want
to replicate the .cmd contents in the .exp file. Add comments or
"subsections" as is done in test_builtins.cmd if necessary, or even
better use descriptive results, like e.g. 'text in single quotes' if
(Also the @ before every rem or echo just add visual clutter IMHO but
that's due to the enabled echo mode)
