FreeBSD's find supports a number extensions for specifying time/datee that
could be useful:

-atime n[smhdw]

find accepts not only plain numbers but also numbers with units, e.g. -atime
-90s, searching for files accessed during the last 90 seconds.

[obviously this also works for -mtime and -ctime]


-newerXY file

             True if the current file has a more recent last access time

             (X=a), change time (X=c), or modification time (X=m) than the

             last access time (Y=a), change time (Y=c), or modification time

             (Y=m) of file.  In addition, if Y=t, then file is instead inter-

             preted as a direct date specification of the form understood by

             cvs(1).  Note that -newermm is equivalent to -newer.


This sounds like featuritis, but the case with Y=t could be useful as it adds
the possibility to specify exact dates like -newermt -'2005-12-24' which we
are currently missing.
