No, I didn't.  You are of course welcome to try, but I am not very
interested in trying.

There are also a number of other implementation mechanisms I didn't
seriously consider (such as using Perl or Python, or making grep-dctrl a
wrapper for ara:-).  I take pleasure in writing this code (in addition
to producing a useful piece of software, it allows me to learn and
relax).
