Whom do you ask?  For optimization issues, people usually come with
a certain, reproducible case to point out a bottleneck.  With that (only),
we could start working on it.

After all, this sounds more like the discussion to strip off the
leading "./" part when doing a bare "find" ... which is usually for
cosmetic reasons in end-user output.  But even then, this could
be avoided with "-printf '%P\n'".

Back to Eric's question: what is wrong with "-printf '%f\n'"?
