On a personal note: I use grip(2) as it just does the job and has done
so for quite some time.

As an SBo admin, I have no problems with grip2 and grip3 co-existing
in the repo, as long as there is something mentioned in the README of
both that they cannot co-exist on a single system, and that it is not
possible to "upgrade" from grip2 to grip3, but that the older version
needs to be uninstalled before installing the newer release.
