Well, a patch for that was posted more than 1 month ago.

If you mean the trivial revert, I had the impression we'd
discussed that already.

I mean the trivial revert.  Regressions should always trump code cleanup.

Sure, but that was not pure "cleanup".

It removed code that was error prone, and that had already
resulted in one bug due to misunderstanding of how it worked.

No, it had not resulted in a bug. Paul thought there was a bug, but there was none.

I suppose by "regressions" you are referring to the risk that
some reasonable portability target lacks a shell, and that
by relying on shell-based fgrep/egrep wrappers, we are
inducing a regression on that system? If someone finds
such a system, I'm sure we'll fix it in the next release, but
I won't see that a regression before I see details of an
actual failure.

Windows?  It has PowerShell, not POSIX shell.
