There is a lesson here: people who are unsatisfied with the performance
of ${TOOL} should profile it before they start a flamefest on -current.

If you're alluding to Dougs original email, I will strictly disagree.
He found a performance issue which noone had seen or brought up before and gave feedback to Gabor in a constructive and distinctively polite manner.

I would also second, that changing back the default immediately then would have been the better choice.

That others supported Gabor in doing profiling and suggesting improvements is a fine thing, and contributes to what makes this community stand out from others.

In other words: as long as there are unresolved issues, the default should be set to GNU grep. This doesn't stop anyone from improving the BSD grep we're all waiting for. It only does good to those who rely on using grep - expecting correctness and speed.
