More or less. Less, when the filenames are too many. See questions
posted on this very same list about ``too many arguments''.
The ``while read line; do stuff with $line; done'' loop doesn't suffer
from the same limitation, but is a bit more expensive in terms of the
number of spawned processes and (consequently) the time it takes to run.
