Re: extended find command

It's an interesting concept, but find should not itself modify the
filesystem unless the user has explicitly requested this (e.g. via
-delete, -exec etc.).  Your script also leaks the two temporary files.

I recall that http://savannah.gnu.org/ also has a similar feature
request for findutils.  Perhaps you might take a look at that and find
a way to implement this in C (i.e. as a patch to find) which doesn't
modify the filesystem.
