I created a toggle ($grep_with_match) which would allow someone to use
$string_utils:match instead of just index().  This allowed me to use

@grep *0..length(verbs(*)) - 1*

or something like that and, although it took longer, I was able to edit
every verb like that *while* it was @grepping :)

There are a lot of #1 verbs that do that - including the examine verbs. 
So there you go.
