   Currently `find' and `find-fold' have a different behavior
   with respect to the order in which they process a directory
   and its files: 
     - `find' process each directory before its contents;
     - `find-fold' process each directory after its contents.

   Perhaps this is the right thing, but I suspect this can be
   confusing for the users in some situations.  What do you
   think about that?

yeah, this inconsistency would confuse me.  looks like find(1) shows
directories before contents:

$ find ~/tmp -print

probably a good idea to mimic find(1) to minimize conceptual discord and
disharmony.  :->
