Ahh. If the File::Find documentation could be better, that too would be
a chance to stage a violent overthrow of the current CPAN author(s) (if
any)... -laugh- (I'm just trying to incite some drama.)
I agree with Andy that you can't (shouldn't) *change* an established
module's interface, even if it looks clunky with 2008 eyeballs, but
there's no harm in adding helper methods to make hardish things easier
(internally using the same guts)...
Since I don't think I've ever used File::Find, I'll shut up now. :)
