It certainly doesn't match "which" semantics, but given the F_OK and X_OK flags I can see cases where it ought not to. I'm not sure it does what it implies for those either though.

I can see uses for "find files according to 'which'" and "find executable files according to 'which'".

Either way, I don't see an easy way to change the semantics any earlier than 3.8, so changing the target.
