Can you get grep to write a lot of stuff to both stdout and stderr in 
the same run though? What about wrapping grep in a shell script that 
uses `tee` (or equivalent) to dump the output to both streams?

Yeah, just pointing it out because 3 years is a lot of code churn for a 
project like GTK+. There's been ~15.5 thousand commits[1] since the 
2.22.0 tag :)

that's the right way, my gitfu is weak.
