When I wrote that test there was no intention to call the grabber for
each and every programme.
My hacking time is limited at the moment, so feel free to adjust it to
store the configuration variables in global variable or similar.
An easy first optimization might be to split the condition into two, to
avoid the expensive test (that presumably calls the grabber now) if the
attribute does not match the expected string.
