OK, since I'm not the maintainer of grep, I'm inclined instead to just
turn [ef]grep into scripts that call grep -E and -F, respectively, which
can then move back to /bin with minimal "waste" of space. Unless somebody
else wants to make an NMU with grep recompiled to support being called as
[eg]grep directly. 


And life still goes on...
