How is it not a solution for -e ? I thought it a perfectly good response
to the problem. And, in fact, it solves a more general problem than just
the -X ops.

Also, presumably -e is shorthand for File.exists or some such, so that
avenue still remains for the postfixification of the -X ops. TMTOWTDI
after all :)

Or maybe -e and friends are just macros and there are no postfix
