Fair enough; I generally prefer the xargs method in case I have to do any more
processing later. Also, xargs' batching may potentially save you a bit of
time, but I doubt that'd be noticable.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor
do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger
is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either
a daring adventure, or nothing.
