I would not say "very low priority". (To me, "very low priority" would be something like supporting GNU grep on IRIX. :-) Regardless, it's better not to try to personalize any disagreement about priorities. I didn't file this bug report, and I didn't set the priority of MS-Windows for the GNU project.

Grep shouldn't second-guess its users

The new code has less guesswork than the old code did, so in that sense it's an improvement.

I just don't want people to think that the new code is equivalent to the old one

We should be OK on that point, as the updated NEWS file contains an entry prominently describing the change and the documentation has been updated to reflect the changed behavior.
