I can say unequivocally that I asked Ken for grep, and the next day it
was in /bin.

But ...

I understand now that grep already existed in /usr/ken/bin. My request
was the last straw that tipped the balance from private to public.
Hopefully Ken can answer whether he made it originally for himself or
for Lee.
