New year, renewed enthusiasm :O)

I am hoping to have the 2.5.4 release out by the end of January or early
February. Please test this pre-release and share your findings (both
positive and negative).

The known failing cases have been disabled and I added a "KNOWN BUGS"
section to the README file. These cases will be re-enable after the
release, and hopefully some or all fixed before the next release.

Awk's dfa code is way out of sync with grep's, and synchronizing them
didn't appear trivial, so it will not be done for 2.5.4, but will be of
priority for a subsequent release.
