OK, but doesn't File::Find recurse into its subdirectories?  If you create
a 'foo' directory there and drop a 'bar' script in it, is the rest of the
code prepared to give you "git difftool -t foo/bar"?

Good that you caught these brown-paper-bag bugs ;-) It feels a bit awkward
that nobody pointed these out, even though the series has been queued in
'pu' since its early iterations.

Now you use File::Find::find(), you probably should do this kind of
trivial filtering inside the callback, no?
