Follow-up Comment #1, bug #55095 (project findutils):

FWIW I think this is a terrible idea. Combining find and wc to count matches
(a) works very well
(b) is accessible. People who know the basic find syntax and know the
existence of wc will do it exactly this way, instead of looking into find(1)
to check whether this implementation features a non standard, not portable way
to count matches.

GNU find already has too many options.
