Update of bug #55095 (project findutils):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 1 - Wish               


Follow-up Comment #4:

It is _not_ as easy as 'i++', what about the interference
with other options, e.g.:

  $ find . \( -name NAMEONE -quit \) -o \( -name NAMETWO -count \)

In that case, the -count action would not be performed if NAMEONE
was found first by chance.  The command following this would certainly
be quite surprised.

FWIW: my favorite for the general case is (although it needs a pointless
  $ find .... -printf '.'  | wc

or, if no other tests/conditions are needed:
  $ du -s --inodes .      # (with GNU du)

Have a nice day,
