grep vs. grab

I pushed my experimental grep version to github.
It features only small amount of options, but it speeds
out grep's on large directory trees, in particular if
you have a fast HDD or SSD, where you can be as
twice as fast.

Curious: did you try to use ack ("betterthangrep"), or even its C reimplementation ag (the_silver_searcher on github). Why did you need to write grab ?
