Subject: [gentoo-dev] Suggestion to drop "pcre" from default enabled USE flags in profiles

After reading:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=419795

I think that would be interesting to try to not get grep build with pcre
support by default, specially after reading "man grep" and seeing that
its support is tagged as experimental:
       -P, --perl-regexp
              Interpret PATTERN as a Perl regular expression.  This is
highly
              experimental and grep -P may warn of unimplemented
features.

Also, at least of my systems there are only a few installed packages
with this USE flag and, then, I am unsure about real advantage of having
it enabled by default :-/

What do you think?
