Update of bug #20865 (project findutils):

                  Status:               Confirmed => In Progress            
             Assigned to:                    None => jay                    


Follow-up Comment #3:

I agree that the right way to tackle this is almost certainly to fail with an
explanatory error message if -delete is specified but -depth is not.

Using -path ... -exec rm -f {} + is less secure, as explained in the manual.
