Well, either One True Awk, or mawk. mawk is significantly faster than gawk,
and, last I checked, had only one actual *bug* that gawk didn't, which is
getting fixed shortly.
mawk is actually faster than perl, while all the other awks are slower.
Wouldn't mind seeing a migration to simpler tools. We could bundle perl
with all the space we'd save.
