faster version of find (for -exec)?

I'm wondering if there is a faster version of `find` (may be in other
languages, such as python or perl).

`-exec` of `find` calls for an external command, which is slow.

If `find` can be implemented in, say, python, then I can use a native
python expression for `-exec`. This should dramatically improve the
speed. But I don't see such a substitution for `find`. Does anybody
know such a tool? Thanks.
