If I do the equivalent of a

in my .emacs file,
C-u C-u M-x rgrep
does indeed use this pattern (and does not ask about anything else, and I could use a keyboard shortcut for this) - so far so good. However, I feel that having to look at that long-ish command every time I use it, is not elegant - in particular, as I need to navigate to the correct position when the find command is being displayed in the minibuffer (point should be between "-e" and "{}" to insert the pattern to search for). Could you help me improve on this?

(defun project-rgrep (regexp)
  "Run `rgrep' with REGEXP, \"*.cpp\" FILES, and \"somepath\" DIR."
     (list (grep-read-regexp))))
  (rgrep regexp "*.cpp" "somepath"))
