in thread Dangerous diamonds!

It doesn't process the files matching * as any sane person would expect it to. It can't even handle files that have leading spaces in their names. It is quite simply stupid, dangerous, and counter-intuitive.

All of these would be fixed if it used three-arg open with an explicit "<" as its second arg. It's a shame that some people think the current way of handling things is okay. :(
