I went back and checked his contributions more carefully.  I now think
it's not difficult to revert almost all his changes.  There was a big
change he made to compile.el, but it was subsequently obseleted by
Daniel Pfeiffer's big revamp of compile.el on 2004-03-11, which
deleted the variables and functions that Kevin Rodgers had introduced
on 1996-11-04.

If we revert all his doc/comment fixes, and reimplement two of his
changes, we can bring the his remaining contributions to 9 small
changes spread over a total of 27 lines.  This will introduce a few
minor typos into Emacs, but absolutely no loss of functionality.

The two changes that we have to reimplement are the following:

1997-03-24  Kevin Rodgers  <address@hidden>

        * compile.el (grep-program): New variable.
        (grep-command): Use it, and test whether it supports the -e
        option; fix doc string (last command is stored in history variable).
        (grep-null-device): Declare before grep-program and grep-command.
        (grep-find-use-xargs, grep-find-command, grep-find-history):
        New variables.
        (grep-find): New command.
        (grep): Only concatenate grep-null-device to COMMAND when it's
        not nil (to support grep-find).

1996-09-12  Kevin Rodgers  <address@hidden>

        * loadhist.el (read-feature): New function.
        (unload-feature): Read FEATURE interactively with read-feature.

I can probably do this in a day.  Should I go ahead with the big revert?
