The log message of the above one singles out "grep" as a special
case and explalins why it did not touch, by the way.  You probably
need to explain the reason why "this is no longer necessary" a bit
better than the above---as it stands, it is "ff6f1f564c4 said it
still is necessary, I say it is not".
