okay, so then i think we're all in agreement to use -delete and throw
out the -print0|xargs.  i double checked on kFreeBSD and find is also
built with O_NOFOLLOW there btw.

so regarding the maxdepth/prune... not sure that we have agreement on
whether this should go at stable/oldstable or not.  do we limit it to
unstable, or do we make the change and maybe add some notes for
-security to put in the DSA?

likewise, with the permissions change?
