I'd argue that that's what "tee" is for.
Once upon a time I hacked up sh to add a version of -x output which looked
more like an interactive session, but eventually decided it wasn't worth
maintaining. It's not like -x output is all that unusable; it's just not as
"pretty" --- but it also provides more information, which can be useful when
trying to diagnose problems.
By the way, this isn't really a ports issue; -questions is more appropriate.
