I Just noticed another option from BSD:

-t threshold

I slightly prefer --min-size and --max-size,
though not at the expense of losing the opportunity
to increase compat between these tools.

I suppose we could rename --size to --threshold too.

It seems there are many ways - like always. ;-)

I think --min-size/--max-size has a functional plus over one
single new option. But increasing compatibility to BSD is tempting.

If I'd be asked to decide between --size and --threshold then
the latter is the winner: a) BSD compat, b) the abbreviation
of the option better fits into the already existing ones,
see --size vs. --si, while --th is (currently) fine.

I'll change the patch towards --threshold then. WDYT?


I don't think adding extra --{min,max}-size options are worth it.
