We've had that feature for years, but our method is #echo ... I think that's a better method name.

We also have #echo: anObject, which appends anObject's echo string to the receiver, separated with a space. You can write...

#(a b c) echo: 123

...instead of...

(#(a b c) printString, 123 printString) echo.

And the #cr is sent before the output string, so it's always on a new line.
