It will become the default for 4.3.0, which will be released as a
development release in parallel with 4.2.x.

I'm thinking I should develop some pre-release checks that I run
before releases but which don't run as part of "make check" even
though they're included in findutils.  There are a number of test that
would be useful but which don't get included right now since they
require lots of disk space or have other requirements which it may not
be possible to fulfil on some random machine.  This test is one of
them.  Would it be feasible to include your test in findutils 4.3.x?
I would be happy to do any modification/tidying etc.
