Follow-up Comment #15, bug #18554 (project findutils):

One other thing to throw in the mix:

POSIX has no requirements on -execdir.  Therefore, I argue that it might make
sense to have -execdir be as friendly as possible, and allow the {} to appear
anywhere, rather than only immediately before the +:

find startpoint -tests ... -execdir rsync {} /dest + 

On the other hand, the current consistency between -exec and -execdir may be
easier to explain in the documentation, so I won't be too upset if you ignore
this particular suggestion.
