Documenting further thoughts on this:

If an EnumeratedAttribute is used, my preference would be:

fail (default)
warn (empty results with a warning)
ignore (empty results, no warning)

I'll add them if I think of any more.

Also, "notfound" is not descriptive enough an attribute name.  To me this
suggests "no matching files found" and could be confusing to users.  Verbose as
it may be, something like "dirnotfound" or even the grammatically ugly
"dirnotexists" carries the minimum amount of semantic content to differentiate
between possible meanings, IMHO.
