;;; Commentary:
;; This is a very generalized form of find; it basically implements a
;; recursive directory descent. The conditions which bound the search
;; are expressed as predicates, and I have not addressed the question
;; of how to wrap up the common chores that find does in a simpler
;; format than writing code for all the various predicates.
;; Some random thoughts are to express simple queries directly with
;; user-level functions, and perhaps use some kind of forms interface
;; for medium-level queries. Really complicated queries can be
;; expressed in Lisp.

;;; Todo
;; It would be nice if we could sort the results without running the find
;; again. Maybe that could work by storing the original file attributes?
