I was hoping to avoid having to write a script (because obviously one needs to
add some protective code around that basic invocation of find), but I guess
I'll have to do so, since it seems clear from your explanation that the
systemd folk use "age" in a way that means something quite different than its
plain and ordinary meaning. That's pretty much what I'd decided anyway, but I
was hoping that I was missing some simple systemd command that actually works
on age, not on something else.

Thanks for the reply and the explanation.
