loops and advanced sed'ing, I came up with a solution which not only makes
easier to write and maintain, but also a lot faster...

In order to implement this solution in sed, a simple flag would be needed,

If you should be interested, I will document this solution properly.

Thank you for your suggestion.

We welcome improvement suggestions and new ideas - and be happy to see
your solution.
However, please bear in mind that there's a fine balance between adding more features, keeping in-line with POSIX standardization, and avoiding bloat.
So while ideas are welcomed - there is no guarantee they will make it
