(by the way, newbies don't use grep because list transforms confuse and
intimidate, not because of the name).
I dispute that. List transforms and grep are wholly separate beast,
having nothing to do with each other besides the fact that the list

There's nothing terribly confusing or intimidating about grep itself
apart from the name; "find all items in this list matching blah" is
pretty straightforward functionality.
