Hmm. I didn't notice any sky-is-falling arguments in this thread,
so I finally started looking around to see why such nasty replies
keep showing up to what I considered reasonable questions...
So, I finally looked back into the "replacement for grep" thread
(which I have been ignoring ever since it stopped talking about
the grep replacement), and I see this topic is being thrashed to
death over there. I still think there could be some useful
discussion on what I was *trying* to talk about here, but I
guess it will have to wait until some other time given how
exasperated people are getting.
