Any chance to make the (still documented) -noleaf option of find work again?

I'm inclined to agree with Pádraig, in thinking that fts should Just Work without the complexity of an extra option to disable an optimization that is supposed to work.

As things stand, 'find' can disable leaf optimization by using a bigger hammer, namely, turn off FTS_CURDIR. However, my suggestion is to deprecate the -noleaf option while you're at it.
