Oh?  I could swear I've seen some data files with multiple header lines 
in them.  So, every time I mount a new filesystem, or unmount an old 
one, orca creates a whole new datafile with a new header?  *looks at his 
data directory*  Oh, look at that.  9 data files on Monday.  Hmm.  Was 
there ever a point where Orca supported column changes mid-stream?

Indeed, if the columns don't change for a particular file, the gawk 
becomes almost trivial. :)  Thanks for the feedback -- the perl regexp 
did the trick for future datafiles, and it sounds like the data file 
cleaning will be easier than I first thought.
