Nice example. However, theres plenty of cases that I use grep to only
operate on certain files, in which case the for each in * magic doesnt
work.  Sure  paul, you could just argue that i should use find and its
print0, but then im limited to xargs -0 -i  '{}'   which is not as
effective as a for loop.
