Follow-up Comment #1:

Well, find(1) does support birth time - both in -newerXY (with 'B' for X or
and in -printf '%Bk' (with the time format as specified by k like for
%Ak, %Ck and %Tk).  It's in since 2007:


The implementation relies on the support of the underlying stat(2)/lstat(2)
and whether the struct stat provides the birth time.  Unfortunately, our main
platform GNU/Linux does not have it.  Instead, we'd have to switch to the
newer statx(2) function like in coreutils' ls(1) or stat(1).

Finally, the documentation for -printf %Bk is missing.
I'll come up with a documentation patch soon.
