I'm sorry you feel this way.  Clearly, your explanation was not
sufficient for me to understand why you think your solution is a good one.

All I really gathered from it is that there are supposedly corner case
situations where you may have 2 versions of `find` installed, both of
them "POSIXish", but where one doesn't accept -print0 and the other
doesn't accept -exec.

Why does renaming find-program to grep-find-program help in such a situation?

Can there be more such odd situations?

If not, then maybe we should have a `find-for-print0-program` and
a `find-for-exec-program`, both of which default to nil which would mean
"just use the value of `find-program`"?
