Could it be that absolute mode is faster? For instance, if you are changing the permissions of a whole filesystem (to make it worse, imagine its a network filesystem), having to do a "stat" of the file before changing it makes it slower, right?

Also, i dont see why it is more powerful because u can do the same thing with both. Personally, I prefer absolute mode since my brain can calculate the mask faster than remembering the command flags.
