I'm not sure it's worth making find-operation-coding-system
configurable in that way.  Even if it is, I think the above
method is too indirect for the purpose of configuring

If a Lisp program wants find-operation-coding-system to
choose a different target from the arguments than normal
case, it can call find-operation-coding-system just with
different arguments.
