Much thanks, Martin, to rub my eyes.

I'm successive with Cygwin to run awk scripts on Windows, but there is 
no library for ksh (Kern Shell) :-(
MKS should be part of "Windows Services for UNIX", see 

Die /MKS Korn shell/ ist eine weitere kommerzielle ksh-Implementierung. 
Sie ist Bestandteil von Microsofts 
<> Windows Services for UNIX 
<> (SFU) 
sowie dem Subsystem für UNIX-basierte Anwendungen (SUA) der Windows 
Vista <> Enterprise 
und Ultimate Editionen.

But maybe nobody has ever tried to run webrev under MKS.
