Ah, thanks for catching the missing quote. During editing, I lost it.

The point was neither reduction in typing nor increase in raw speed, though. To me personally, the extra grep was gratuitous; more importantly, cached results of one file test were not being used for another file test.

(Perhaps I should have put something along the lines of "unless your effort was one off or were just testing" somewhere in my previous reply.)
