The problem with that is that the number of columns can change in the 
middle of a file (as with adding a new filesystem, for example).  Also, 
regular 'awk' can't handle lines that long (4088 characters).  Though 
'gawk' seems capable of working with it.  Still, coding the gawk script 
to extract the right column at all times is something I could probably 
do, but goes beyond the "easy" part of "easy way to delete columns" I 
was looking for. ;)  I see orcallator-column in the distribution .. I 
suppose I could start with that.  But I remember hearing about a tool 
out there for manipulating the source orca data files.  Hmm,
