I still believe that to be true.  Since you haven't shared what the
actual task is there is no way for us to propose any counter example
improvements.  So "almost" is as far as I can go.  Instead should I
say 99.44% of the time?  Since I have never come across a counter
example yet?

Nothing St├ęphane said changed my statement at all.

It does look like bash can be more efficient with argument handling.
Since, for example, dash does it.
