ok... ARG -- I just installed the new version of grep from
my distro (suse13.2) -- grep-2.20-2.4.1.x86_64

I think they'll be out with a new distro release in about
a year...(yes, I can probably build my own...like I have
to with a growing body of Software)

This is openSUSE specific.
When you've built your own version with a patch for a problem,
nothing prevents you from simply creating a submit request for
that patch on OBS to "Base:System/grep", and maybe even creating
a maintenance request for "openSUSE:13.2/grep".  Get involved.
     Main thing my patch is restoring functionality of 'rm'
to allow "rm -fr ." [...]

stop, 'rm -rf .' is a completely different story - your bug report
was about 'grep -P' (for which the bug report is OT on the coreutils
mailing list btw.).
Having your own (probably non-generally wanted) patches in your own
OBS project is perfect.  I was just talking about submitting the
patch for the non-utf8 issue (for which I personally didn't check
whether it is already included downstreams).

Have a nice day,
