I don't see c.cpp attached. The bogosity may be causes by the difference
in echo behaviour, I guess.

I will be really slow. The reason is simple: the transformation sequence
will be computed again and again, and that's slow. However, it's also
simple to cache results -- say, you'll convert WD to CPP once and will
be chaning only file names after that.
