Sorry for the tardy response.
This was actually proposed previously.
It's still a tempting option to add.
Given the simplicity, and usefulness +1 from me.

"Liulk" reminded me off-list about this topic.
This was the conversation:

Hi Bernhard,

I noticed that at least two people have independently contributed their 
implementation of the --min-size option to du in
the past.

And I was on my way to become the third one, except I realized none of their 
contributions made in to coreutils.

Is there a reason for rejecting their patches, or do you have plans to 
incorporate them at some point?


Hi Liulk,

thanks for the heads-up - I think we lost focus on this.
The last reply on this was from Padraig:

I'm working on a complete patch incl. tests and docs now
and will post it on the mailing list soon.

Have a nice day,

I was pretty sure that this slipped also from Padraig's list.

Sorry for the delay in this.

Note it's still on the list:

Therefore, I took Jakob's patch and amended it with documentation
and a comprehensive test. ;-)

Wow great work on the test.

I wonder would it make sense to have consistent --size
handling for du and truncate. I.E. have --size='<10M'
specify the max size and --size='>10M' specify the min size?
