I have no time to test this but I trust that you made sure that it works
as advertised. In my case, there were about 500 gigabytes of image data
intermixed with code, and waiting for 'git grep' was not funny at all (and
I did not have time back then to go through a full code submission cycle
on the Git mailing list, either).
So I guess we can drop my patch.
