These 4 are deprecated. Their functionality has been taken over by
the cd and cl modules. AWARE is a module of constants for the cl
module, but I'm not sure whether you can actually use the
functionality that these constants represent. If I remember right, in
some release of SGI there was support for this, but you needed a
license (which we never got). I doubt that anybody uses AWARE, so it
can be removed, as far as I am concerned.

Should be incorporated in sv module.
