IMO, for a one-off command, I'd just as soon take a short term hit and be
done with it. This is particularly true of commands which may consume a
lot of memory resources, which you'd rather were not tied up for long.

procmail recipes and reissuing of trigger messages) to find out whether
its find supports "-ls" -- which, by the way, I've never heard of before.

Then again, -perm -001 would remove the need for any ls functions.
Well, the output from ls is useful just the same. I suggested -perm in a
previous post, since it'd reduce the number of potential mis-hits.
