gnu find: paths must precede expression

I would like to suggest that GNU find frop the tradiotional brain-dead
instance of find to insist that the path be the first option. I tend to
think o find as what it it truly is, a grep of FS metadat, and end up
writing my commands
        find EXPR path
only to have to go back and tweak it. I can see no reason why this need be
maintained other than the wonderous ability to proclaim "invalid predicate".
MOTD on Boomtime, the 19th of Discord, in the YOLD 3171:
"Five to one against and falling ... four to one against and falling ... three 
to one ... two ... one ... probability factor one to one ... we have normality, 
I repeat we have normality. Anything you still can't cope with is therefore 
your own problem."
