Yeah, I did notice the history for input(), but it behaves in some sort
of a wacky way. Maybe my settings are to blame, somehow. Today I played
with it some more - completion does not work for the pattern; it does
seem to work for directories.
Another thing I noticed today is that pruning does not work for me - I
had to comment out the lines in the grep.vim to get basic searching to
work. Still, it behaves rather intermittently (the latest: search works
the first time, and as soon as i jump to any of the matches all
subsequent searches fail). Again, I am eager to blame my potentially
weird mode of not having cygwin in my path, but running a cygwin bash
with cygwin tools. I don't know. I just need a bit of time to play with
it - I'll figure it out.
