Comment(by filosofo):

 I'd recommend {{{_ex}}} over {{{_e_x}}}:
  * Consistent with how {{{_n}}} and {{{_x}}} are combined into `_nx`
  * {{{[something]_[something else]}}} seems usually to connote that one
 function calls another, which doesn't really happen here (`echo` isn't a
 function and doesn't transform the value in question)
