D'oh!  Not possible: there's no -xdev option on chown, so that would
do a whole lot more chown-ing than intended, as it reached across the
network, or at least into other mount points under "/"  ...

While just checking that, I also discovered that "man chown" now
produces no output.  Other man entries seem fine.
