Well. "empty" is an English word, not "a decimal number with units
m/b/k"... :-)

In the doc :
"The default size is zero so that any file which gets matched by another
critereon is deleted."

What I find strange is that one cannot specify explicitly this default
behaviour that is "size=0".

"empty" looks like another behaviour that is not what I want:
"However, if you want to single out only totally empty files, the empty
may be used."

Just relaxing the parser a little bit ?
