awk and sed are great tools, but the problem with awk is that any
interactions with external utilities spawns an extra /bin/sh process,
wich sucks a hell of a lot in Web CGI scripts. That's why using a shell
in the first place, with a bit of care, tends to be more efficient.
And awk does not even have an 'exec' facility, that would also help with
saving processes.
