I can do without it! I just do

setopt extendedglob
chmod g-x **/*(#q.E^AI)~xxxx/**/*

(I hope I understood that find command correctly)

The only possible prolem would arise from the argumen list being too
long, and then I can just

zmodload zsh/files

which implements chmod inside of zsh. Or I could

print -l **/*(#q.E^AI)~xxxx/**/* | xargs chmod g-x

But of course that requires the zsh. So there's at least something all
that bloated code buys.
