OK, I'm trying ZSH right now but tell me how I search through both
normal and hidden directories, like:

~/Sound/.directory one
~/Sound/.directory two/subdir one
~/Sound/directory three
~/Sound/directory four/.subdir two

% for f in ~/Sound/**/*; do echo $f; done
~/Sound/directory three
~/Sound/directory four

gives only normal directories level 1 of dir tree, and

% for f in ~/Sound/.**/*; do echo $f; done
~/Sound/.directory one
~/Sound/.directory two

gives only hidden directories level 1 of dir tree

but I want combined, and I can't, and it won't search in deeper
directory tree, so back to find and it work the same as in BASH - square

% PLAYLIST=; while read f; do PLAYLIST="${PLAYLIST}\n${f}"; done< <(find
$PWD -iname '*.ogg'); mplayer -playlist <(echo "$PLAYLIST")

is only thing that works with -playlist, and maybe at least it works
with special characters under ZSH
