 Yes, I think it does what I think it does. :-) THis prints the
 separator as I would expect it to:

     echo -e "#separator ;\n1;2;3;4\n" | awk '/#separator/ {FS=$2; print

 But it doesn't apply the new FS, at least on my Mac awk.

 Anyway, let's just pick something and go ahead. I still prefer the
 whitespace here[1] so why don't we always make the first line look
 like this

     #seperator \t

 (Indeed with the standard C escaping for non-printable characters).

 [1] Because the escaping makes sure there's no whitespace in the
 separator itself.
