[Findutils-patches] Change request proposal for a new Find functionality

Good morning,

This mail just to mention a simple lacking functionality in the Find command :

There is no way to disable the warning messages sent on the error
output, and especially the "Permission non granted" error message sent
for each unaccessible directory met during the research process.

The alone way proposed on various docs or sites is to redirect the
error output on /dev/null. OK, thank's, but that's far to be great.
This is even an invitation to very bad programming, especially by
avoiding the ability to choose through the find parameters the
warnings which are suppressed and those which are not.

So, I submit to the Find maintainers the idea of a change request for
this functionality, maybe through a new option.

Sincerely yours,

Michel Lanne.
