Generating TAGS file for Emacs recursively?

How to generating TAGS file for Emacs recursively? etags seems not support recursively generating TAGS file.

I use ctags instead. It can also generate TAGS file for Emacs with the -e option:

ctags -e -R .

You can also use etags with find:

find ./ -print | xargs etags

But I prefer the ctags way.
