Users should not need to "avoid" using the default settings.

Yes, they should install 'grep' and 'find'. Luckily, these programs are already available on the systems we care about most. And they're not so hard to install on the others.

The "new" is clearly not a sufficient replacement for the "old".
It should have been (should be) added only as an opt-in option,
not imposed as replacement.

It's a tradeoff.

We, frankly, don't have the technical capability (code quality WRT extensibility and manpower) to never remove features while continuing to move forward.
