I can happily do that at home (where I can also just reset
GREP_OPTIONS at the top of the offending SGE script), but not really
at work which has the same issue. I have no control over the emacs
installation and don't really want to start building and supporting my
own personal emacs there.

Is there any chance of a backport into emacs 22 or is that not being
patched any more? I believe I have more chance of convincing my
sysadmins to install an official emacs release than to start hacking
in elisp code :)
