In the particular case of File::Find there are plenty of other modules that does the same thing with different interfaces.

Of course, the particular problem in the case of File::Find is that it has been christened by the community as the way to do directory traversal. I know that I've been slammed in the past for mentioning that I wanted to do things in a way that was incompatible with File::Find.

Also, most of the other ways to do directory traversal are wrappers arround File::Find (File::Finder, File::Find::Rule, for example). All others (that I know of) do it poorly (as well as older versions of File::Find... which are all that work on older perls).
