More Vim scripts problems

Unite, for example, ignores the Vim
grepprg option. Instead, it uses its own

Vim scripts do not follow the UNIX philosophy
Why should Jedi take care of the map that triggers omni completion? Isn't the Supertab task? Shouldn't Jedi have been implemented just as an omni completion funcion, like Tern for Vim, an let other scripts complete the magic? And talking about Tern, shouldn't it be splited into little scripts which talk to the Tern engine itself to do just one task, like provide jump-to-definition using Ctrl+] instead of defining its own
