  "Find all matches for REGEXP in all marked files, recursively."

What does it mean to find matches in a particular marked file,
_recursively_?  This seems to be a nonsense description.

If what you mean is that the marked files in a marked _subdirectory_
are searched, and so on for its marked subdirs, recursively - then
say so.

If you don't mean something like that then I cannot imagine what this
means.  How can a _file_ (marked or not) be searched recursively?
