Well, it's 6 of one, half-dozen of the other. Meaning, whether it's done 
via a function, or done via a parameter, the end result is pretty much 
the same, and I doubt the code difference is much either.

Most functions that echo have a "get_" counter part, and those that 
don't probably will in the future.
