A test suite would be useful. Whilst rumours exist in various places on
the Internet of awk test suites, I've not actually found one, let alone
one with a suitable licence.

(Heck, actually GPL-only would just about be OK for a test suite, as it's
not being linked into anything. So maybe there is hope.)

Getting awk and sed testsuites would be useful.
