Follow-up Comment #7, bug #28912 (project findutils):

Íf, as Andreas said, the token "{}" is used as the
referred "string", this interpretation is difficult
to see directly. The "{}" is not usually
understood as a "string".

May I suggest something like (please improve):


         This option is a synonym for -Ireplace-str if
         replace-str is specified. With plain -i, this
         is synonym for -I{} which sets replace-str
         token "{}" to mimic the behavior of find(1)
