Yes, and deliberately so, to avoid having to think about things like
"how would a multi-line match interact with 'grep -n'?"

Ah, that is a pity.

I find the multi-line mode very useful for finding code problems that span 
multiple lines.

I'm sure there are other options that conflict, and the solution is to normally write out some kind of informative error message?

Anyhow, since I'm too busy working on LibreOffice right now to work up a patch 
for git, I'll stick to using
    find | xargs grep
