Dude, this is silly. I *constantly* use 'find -type d', and I know
that I have to pipe that through 'grep -v .svn/'. Why can't folks
doing 'find -name '*.[ch]' do the same piping?

We're already marking the text-bases as read-only, so I'm sorry, but I
think your concern is just overboard. We simply can't protect
everyone in the world from shooting themselves in the foot in any one
of several ways.

With great shell comes great responsibility.
