Wow, learn something every day.  Thanks.

Alas, though, this mishandles files whose time stamps differ only in
the subsecond parts, whereas 'ls' by itself would get it right.  Looks
like 'find' is another program that needs to be updated to be struct

I thought about this a year or so ago. The obvious thing to do is to
change %A@ and friends so that they produce a number which is no
longer an integer.  I enquired on the bug-findutils mailing list about
whether anybody thought that this would break scripts currently
depending on the existing behaviour.  At the time, I took no response
as "shrug" rather than "no".
