Follow-up Comment #5, bug #52137 (project findutils):

Thanks for the patches ... I also had already started something similar.

I squashed the commits into one, and changed the following:
- use error() rather than fprintf(),
- factor out the outputting of the warning diagnostic into
  its own function, and mention the actually conflicting options
  in the message,
- improve the warning message:
   - "..., using the last one specified."
   + "..., ignoring previous -I,-i value"
- add a NEWS entry,
- fix some typos,
- improve the documentation (e.g. added an example),
- change the test cases to always only have 2 conflicting options,
- adjust the commit message to GNU standard.

With your permission, I'd push the attached soon.

(file #42117)
