Don't think so - if humanly going down an old phone book, my thumb would stop at where the search failed (where it could have been inserted)- not a machine version which can stop an indeterminate distance before your brain would.

I would agree if I was searching through files and directories. But in my case, I am talking of a list of people (which just happen to be filenames).
