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.
