Would the envvar be documented?  Would it be a deprecated feature, with
a removal plan?  It seems we traded removing [ef]grep into introducing
new unsupported features which feels a bit unsatisfying...

How about saying that the envvar, together with all remaining traces of
[ef]grep references will be removed in 2025?

The point with the excercise was (at least to me) to remove complexity,
but it seems we will have to wait some more until that can happen.
