    Feel free to provide an awk script which implements the
    equivalent functionality.

    I think it would dramatically improve your chance to get
    your proposals accepted, if you would try to understand what
    your counterpart says.

    In my last email, I tried to communicate to you that you are
    putting words into my mouth. Nobody likes that, especially if
    you get it wrong. You have now succeeded in getting things
    wrong again (no, I did not defend the choice of Perl and
    never accused you of being anti-Perl, nor did I ever say that
    I dislike automake or GNU make).
