FWIW, activity on grep appears to have restarted.  Redhat looks like 
they're keen on getting patches applied upstream now 
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-grep/2005-04/index.html).  We've 
lived with `grep' in its current state for long enough, I'll hold off 
changing instructions or adding patches to it for now.
