Indeed.  I was planning to do that, hopefully by being able to present
to him a patch to gawk.  But I wanted to get the idea through here first
(no need to invest extra work if it's not liked, or cannot be made to
work on some of the rarer systems).

Speaking of $extrasub, wouldn't it be useful to document it, or, failing
that, at least add a test so that we don't break it inadvertently?
