That's true, so having an additional feature for multiple-buffer grep
commands would also be nice, but it's an orthogonal issue.  My common
use case is that I grep for "featurep 'xemacs", and then I grep for a
different function, and when I'm finished with that, I just want to
return to my previous search.  The `r'/`l' commands fit that perfectly.
