I think it's a good idea. Call the next release 2.6 if you must, but
moving off the old regex is very important IMHO.

One thing I've started doing in gawk, just for my own sanity, is putting
the CVS/RCS $Id$ numbers of glibc files into the ChangeLog when I import
them.  That way, a year later I know what version I started with and I
can look at the current glibc to see what's changed.  That also makes
it easier to see which, if any, of my changes may have filtered back
into glibc, so that I don't need to propogate them forward.

So, I recommend that practice for grep as well.
