a) a system administrator has to be familiar with grep (don't throw in
FUD like "awk, etc.", those are tools for people that like them).
Learning grep's usage for this purpose is not much more complicated than
learning apt-history's usage.
b) it is a problem for _everyone_ if you create a _new_ package, which
eats up disk space with its meta data and kills apt's performance for no
good reason
