Hi Berny,

On a side note.. an issue has been raised against my repo regarding
compatibility with BSD-based find in MacOS and Solaris, apparently -xattr
in those distributions doesn't take an argument.

Could you tell me what the strategy is for handling compatibility between
GNU find and BSD find? Do we try to be compatible? Do we not care and just
do our own thing?

many thanks
