Not really.  As a general statement, I am trying to spend less of
my life on gawk and more of it on other things...

There's only one place at the moment where an "invalid" check is
performed. "Not fully implemented" thus means that there are undoubtedly
many more places where such checks could be performed, but haven't been.

If all you want is to be able to disable the "foo is a gawk extension"
warnings, I can probably do that without too much effort.

If, on the other hand, you want something more elaborate, then either
you'll have to find someone else to do the work, or consider financing
my doing it.
