Yeah, it sounds like we should make this change.

However, I hear that ‘core-updates’ is super frozen right now.  But note
that we could change the ‘grep’ package anytime, just note the
‘grep-final’ thing in commencement.scm.

IOW, if we’re cautious, we should be able to add PCRE support to grep
and Git in ‘master’ without triggering a full rebuild.
