If you leave those keys alone then there is no issue whatsoever.
Users who want the traditional `A' and `Q' behavior need not
install `grep' or `find'.  Users who want the new behavior can
do so if they need to - no problem.

I read some messages in some bug reports, but certainly not most.

I give up.
