Last i tried it find executed the command in -exec once for every match,
so this would save one pipe and cost (roughly) N-2 forks with rm,
compared to the "find PRED -print0 | xargs -0 rm -rf" solution.

You can check my assumption by doing:

   find PRED -exec echo \;


   find PRED -print0 | xargs -0 echo
