Follow-up Comment #5, bug #14630 (project grep):

I think this is a pretty signifigant feature and would be a GoodThing(tm) to

I think the ifconfig example was just an example, not a practical use.  I use
the -p on AIX to hork out individual records when a record is multiple lines.

It may be a nonstandard option, but it's quick, easy and useful.

There is no comparison between a single, simple flag and using AWK, or
writing a PERL one-liner, or whatever.

I know this is very very nontrivial to add, but I highly recommend it because
it's the right thing to do on a number of fronts, including GNU being
replacements for closed-source tools, usability by the non-UNIX
elite/experts, etc.
