I guess that's the important part anyway. But it doesn't look exactly
right: at least on my
system it updates atime also if atime == mtime. So you always get to see if
the file was
read after the last time it was written to.

A newly-created file would have mtime == atime, and if test -N requires
mtime > atime,
it won't find those. Not sure if it should.
