Has anyone benchmarked David's idea (with C veriexecgen) compared to
this approach? Elegance can be a good trade-off to a bit of performance.

At any rate, I think it is a good idea to accept a list of files on stdin.
Both to conform to Unix semantics, and because to me (and likely others)
this is much more intuitive.

(Or maybe it already does, in that case, discard this message.)
