This is wonderful news. Red Hat uses GNU awk, so it seems likely it will 
(eventually) appear there.

I'm aware I could compile it myself, but this is for a professional use 
on the systems running a power grid, and even if I were to take the leap 
to install an open source version instead of the official RHEL awk, 
there are government regulations making that a bad idea.
