Good idea.

No reason - I've just added it as a synonym for --basename which is
what I assume you had in mind.

It's documented in the manpage, I just forgot to add it to the Texinfo
documentation.  Now fixed.

Yes, it's a bugfix.

OK.  What are the modifications you have in mind?

Would you like to assign all future contributions to findutils also?
That will make it simpler to continue to contribute later (because you
would not have to redo the paperwork).  If you don't want to do that,
it's OK, the assignment papers for just the set of changes you're
contributing now would work.
