Maybe, but I don't see where? By the way, I just pushed a test
involving eof and <<>> as ad77c200c8a4ed. eof() (with empty parentheses)
still continues to open the next file the old way.

What would that solve? The point is that <> and <<>> differ on how they
open the next upcoming file. This is not a property of ARGV.
