I've found wcgrep so useful, I've implemented a similar script for find.

I hope someone else will also find this useful. I wouldn't mind if someone
put it in the Subversion contrib directory.

# Inspired by wcgrep, useful for running find within a working copy.
# Should behave exactly as find does, except that this ignores any
# .svn directories (along with their contents).
# WCFIND_FIND Controls what command is used for the 'find' command.
# Defaults to 'find'


# Separate the path arguments from the expression.
# Use an array so paths with spaces can be passed to find as a
# single word.
while test $# -gt 0; do
    if test "${1:0:1}" = "-"; then
        # we found an expression, no more paths
    elif test "$1" = "("; then
        # parenthesis are expressions
        # collect the path into the path array
        pathargs=("${pathargs[@]}" "$1")
        shift 1

# '-true' prevents errors in case no expression is given
# '-not -name .svn' removes .svn from the implicit -print

"$WCFIND_FIND" "${pathargs[@]}" \
    "(" -name .svn -prune -o "(" -true "$@" ")" ")" -not -name .svn
