I agree; I particularly hate many-in-order-prompts types of user
interfaces (try `modify-face' for an extreme example).

Even if it's desirable to put a prettier face on `grep', I think it
should still have the same `feel' -- like a dialog box where you can
enter all the parameters and toggle the options in whatever order you
want (and only if you need to) and hit GO.
