you don't want to cool the lights off so much that their efficiency drops off.

My understanding is that most fluorescents LOSE efficiency if the temp gets over 100F or so. Am I wrong???

It goes both ways -- too cold OR too hot. There is a "sweet spot" where the efficiency of the lamp is at it's peak. Ivo Busko I think has some posts in the archives about exactly what those temperatures are for several types of bulbs.
