But since you asked: you might have 2 versions of 'find' (under
different names), one that is good at invoking programs via -exec, the
other that supports the -print0 action.

Basically, imagine a system with several different ports of 'find',
each port with its own advantages and bugs.

One way to handle this would be to keep find-program as a user option, but add a few specialized ones which would default to the former's value.
