A completely irrelevant tangent, but I was being an idiot here.  The
"-scaler #$files" is not about two send-email running back to back.
A second invocation that sends out a long series will start its
timestamp #$files in the past, that will overlap with the timestamp
of the last one in the first invocation.  And that is not what the
code attempts to address.  It wants to merely avoid timestamps from
the future.
