Oh.  That explains why I couldn't find it.  Technically, 4.3+ is still 
alpha ( ftp://alpha.gnu.org/pub/gnu ) even though 4.3.0 was released on 
Dec 12, 2005.  The current stable version ( 
http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/findutils/ ) is 4.2.30 (from Feb 28, 2007).

I chose to go with stable since there were no features I found lacking 
in the stable version (and I am a find junky).  The access args are 
interesting and can make some things easier, but--as you've 
proved--aren't required.  :)  However, I will keep this is mind for 
future upgrades...
