(this test is broken yet, waiting for vio to be finished)

	Run: ./app -f test.awk

	   (with standard FS in awk this is true). The MAIN part of
	   the script consists of _all_ rules except for BEGINs and ENDs. */

	   MAIN on an empty buffer will return immediately, without any awk
	   code being executed */
