Follow-up Comment #3, bug #49147 (project findutils):

Can you elaborate, on the security benefits of not outputting tabs to the
terminal? Especially as this is easily circumvented using `cat` I don't see
the benefit. I would be happy to learn here.

Anyway, I do suggest adding this to the documentation.

I would also be glad with an answer of "good idea, why don't you implement
it?", but I don't understand this answer.
