Bind project-find-regexp to it?

Not sure since project-find-regexp is not asynchronous as grep.

All the more reason for someone to work on that. And the former has
other benefits.

‘C-x p s g’ could be bound to a new command ‘M-x project-grep’ that could run:

   git --no-pager grep --color -inH -p -e "search_string"

And then we'll have three very similar commands side-by-side in the same menu, or on the same prefix?

project-find-regexp is the available backend-agnostic option. You can write project-grep, but it would most likely have to work with xargs, like former does.

Then ‘C-x p C-s’ could be bound to ‘project-search’

People are welcome to use it, but it's implementation and UI are suboptimal in several respects.

and ‘C-x p M-%’ to ‘project-query-replace-regexp’.

BTW, why current project commands are not documented
in the Emacs Info manual?  Should they?

I don't know. What are the criteria?
