Follow-up Comment #2, bug #51506 (project findutils):

A bit of parsing could also be omitted for a string like “-printf %f\\n”
if the desired output function could be selected by a build configuration
parameter instead.

I guess that my data processing goals might not be prominent enough so far for
this aspect.
Some developers are still used to the detail that a function like
“basename()” needs to be called more often because extra prefixes are
provided by default.

* Does the hint to the “benchmark” indicate eventually a rejection just
because corresponding software development efforts will not be accepted?
* Which system test would be representative to show that reduced file names
can result in nicer run time characteristics because of less data transfer?
