Indeed, I think the nature of dmenu is very different from grep, since
it is very interactive. grep is a command, whereas dmenu is an
interface, and I think they need to be treated differently.

A while back I did write a dmenu patch which uses regcomp(3), which I
could rustle together for you if you'd like. It won't ever be in
mainline, though.
