Follow-up Comment #7, bug #60383 (project findutils):

@James (#comment3): thanks for listing those restrictions; I also thought
about them in this way.

Especially no. 1 (the seek position in the file) would maybe be tricky to to
ensure.  But I think it's an extreme corner case to continue processing after
find; e.g. count the entries in the list after 'find' has found e.g. the first
file younger than 10 days and quits:

cat file \
  | { find -files0-from=- -mtime -10 -quit; \
      wc --files0-from=- -l; }

I'll start working on a patch - unless someone else already has something to
