Which is why you shouldn't use the above, but have find produce a list
of the files to be changed and when you are sure it doesn't contain any
stray things process them either via the -exec + option in find or
piping into xargs (the latter is slightly less efficient and you have to
do -print0/-0, but I tend to get it right more easily then the -exec
