It's a shell feature: if you do "set -x" in a shell script, all the
commands in the current shell get transcribed (to stdout, I think).

In a shell, type "help set" to learn a lot (better "help set | less").

So if you sneak a "set -x" into said shell scripts you get to see
what they are "thinking". Very useful for debugging purposes.
