GNU parallel supports all of the xargs options and handles special characters without using NULs. See Differences between GNU Parallel and alternatives.

@poige As you say, your command would miss all executables not in $PATH, not satisfying the question.

On my system that passed between 800 and 3500 arguments to each exec process. Good call.

Parallel has much better handling of special filenames. For instance, find /|xargs -n100 -i file {} would throw errors on the first filename with a single quote in it, while GNU parallel will happily plod along.

parallel -n100 won't spin off 100 tasks, it will only run one at a time sequentially, and give at most 100 arguments to each instance. See the max-args option in the GNU parallel man page

comment Sync local files to remote git repository
That's what git clone is for: to mirror a git repository so you can make your own changes without disturbing the remote git repository. But in your case you would git push back to your Linux server when you were done.
