Ah ok, I wasn't aware that there is a difference between "shell keywords" and 
"shell builtins":

$ type time
time is a shell keyword
$ type echo
echo is a shell builtin


But what I am really interested in is you guys (and girls! 😊) view on whether 
it would be desirable (and implementable with affordable effort) to add some 
form of a nestable quoting mechanism (e.g. something like $[...]) to bash for 
the reasons I tried to point out in my previous post.
