That *feels* like a really poor use-case for #bash. Maybe it doesn't matter, since all the heavy lifting gets done by system utilities, presumably written in C. But it still feels like it's far form ideal.

Not sure, though.

@codesections yeah, now realizing it's mostly a wrapper that breaks a task into chunks?

Makes me curious if a Rust version could beat it
