What's an "awk bug"?  Why is it better to file it against gawk?  If mawk
is the implementation that has the bug, you should file it against
mawk; or against general if there are a substantial number of important
bugs in mawk that are fixed in gawk, justifying a swapping of package
priorities.  If you're just bitching because you want more GNU software,
you should really find something more productive to do with your time.

Duh.  What do you think a distro *is*?
