I don't see how (2) is any tougher to grep than (3)...?

If I'm grepping, I'm usually concerned with things like
variable/function names and not with punctuation, so if I were grepping
for the above function signature I'd probably write:

$ grep 'fstat.*fd.*statbuf' man2/*

...which would catch either of the above just fine.

Am I missing something?
