I'll try.

Besides: I tried to use File::Find to generate playlists for Hardware 
MP3-Player. As these devices often use the ISO-filesystem, Linux with 
his "nojoliet, norock" mount option is very good for this kind of 
jobs. But the way File::Find traverses the filesystem isn't 
predictable. Perl 5.6's File::Find returns all folders even in reverse 
order, whereas older versions under perl 5.004 are doing this right.
So at the moment I'm doing these things with a simple and small (but 
unoptimized) recursive function. Is it planned to support different 
ways of traversing the directory tree? (except for the finddepth, 
which just insures listing the contents of a directory first)
