How do you specify something that is workable for both
files and directories when doing r=inf?

The 'files' action automatically adds execute bits to directories that have read bits, which is usually the behaviour that you want.

I have had inconsistent results with this on the 'copy' action, but it always works great in 'files'.

Nature and nature's laws lay hid in night,
God said, "Let Newton be," and all was light.

It did not last; the devil howling "Ho!
Let Einstein be!" restored the status quo.
