[Python-3000] Droping find/rfind?

At today's sprint, one of the volunteers completed a patch to rip out
find() and rfind(), replacing all calls with index()/rindex(). But now
I'm getting cold feet -- is this really a good idea? (It's been listed
in PEP 3100 for a long time, but I haven't thought about it much,

What do people think?
