Follow-up Comment #2, bug #55095 (project findutils):

This would be counter to the Unix philosophy of small programs that do one
thing well that can be combined together to perform new useful things.

This is just one example of something that is unpredictably needed but can be
created as needed using the low level tools.  Which is why it should not be
done.  What else would need to be added too?  Should spell checking be added
to find in case someone wants to spell check files in a directory tree?  There
is really no end to the creeping featurism problem once one starts down that
