Follow-up Comment #1, sr #104720 (project findutils):

I don't think that find ever considers nonexistent files, unless you count
broken symbolic links (for which "-type l -xtype l" succeeds).  Hence I'm not
sure if the existence check is useful.  

As for the other tests, I did initially think of '-access read' and so on,
but now I'm leaning towards '-readable', '-writable' and '-executable'.  

I'll start on the implementation of this in 4.3.0, which will be a
development release series for a while, so we will have scope to change our
minds here.  

What do you guys think?
