No.  As far as I can see, it's the same as the `old' awk-mode, except
with lots of menus added.

Most of the menu entries seem to actually be `documentation,' where each
menu entry label contains a short summary of a function or variable's
usage, and selecting it inserts the summary as a sort of `template'.

I'm not entirely sure if the menus are the best place for all this info,
but it might be handy (I'm forever browsing the manual whenever I write
an awk program).

There are other small changes too, but they _seem_ to actually be
reversions, possibly because he based his code on an older copy of
awk-mode.el than is in CVS (it's hard to tell because he sent the whole
file instead of a patch).

Saa, shall we dance?  (from a dance-class advertisement)
