I'm sure it's just a joke - but for some (and I've seen these guys' code before) who might think it a good idea.

Since the act of converting to string in decimal is probably also using multiple mod 10's. If so not even the unequal mod optimization's possible, not to mention it would do one mod for each decimal digit (instead of only one mod 5). So before you can even compare the last character to "5" or "0" you've already made the code run a lot slower just to get to that point, never mind fractions.
