Of course, what I really would love to see is something that had an API like File::Find::Rule (or File::Finder) but that didn't wrap File::Find.

Why? Because File::Find gets all the files/directories/etc first, and then starts calling its callback. When dealing with a very large tree, it's memory-inefficient, and you end up waiting forever for the first call to happen. So annoying.

[Corion]: Oh yay. Thanks to The New Firefox, my irc client ChatZilla doesn't work anymore either... So I'll have to keep an old FF around just for that...
[Corion]: 100% of my FF add-ons are unsupported currently. Maybe upgrading Firefox wasn't such a good idea after all ;)
[Corion]: Also suffering is my 2-factor Github sign-in, as now, FF can't read my USB token anymore. "This was a horrible idea" is slowly dawning on me ;)
