How about when prompting for M-x grep,
    Run grep (like this): grep -n -e
You instead prompt with
    Run grep (like this): grep -n -e X *

Even better would be *.foo, where foo is the extension of the visited file.

with the cursor placed where I've put the X
because otherwise we often forget to fill in the *,
which is often what we want.
