uniq's -k is still something we'd like.

I glanced through most of that thread, and the guidance is still valid.
If you are interested, be sure to start the copyright
assignment paperwork:

    http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/coreutils.git/tree/HACKING#n327 copyright

and to read/follow the other guidelines in HACKING.

of code, and to keep review request size manageable, I suggest
you keep the mailing list in the loop on what you're doing/planning.
