bug#5282: Defaults for grep interface

Many things here are inconsistent in the grep interface. The interactive lgrep and rgrep commands have a default using the basic RE format, while the grep command's default uses an extended RE format. The lgrep command's doc string says that given two 'C-u' prefixes, you can edit and directly run 'grep-command', (shouldn't this really be 'grep-template' ?) This didn't seem to really work at all, but if it did, how would it be different than using the interactive 'grep' directly?

The default grep-find-template (for rgrep) doesn't use the required <D> place holder at all, and then rgrep changes into the 'base directory' before running the command in the context of the current directory, per the default grep-find-template.

GNU Emacs 23.1.1
