I think this describes me pretty accurately.

My point is that asking a lot of questions all at once in a transient
screen is better than asking the same lot of questions sequentially.
One of the reasons being, if you realize you have answered one of the
previous questions wrongly, you can just revisit that question rather
than canceling and restarting the whole sequence.

I should probably just make a wrapper for rgrep (or find/grep
directly) for myself.
