First of all, find(1) is maintained in the GNU findutils project,

I think the GNU toolbox already gives you enough flexibility to support
these edgy use cases, e.g. sorting by file size:

  find . -printf "%s/%p\0" \
    | sort -zt '/' -k1,1n  \
    | sed -z 's,^.*/,,'

That is great. So there is nothing do here, basically; all the better.

No null-terminated patch for ls is required; GNU sort can sort the
specially formatted null-terminated output from find.

See; it pays to have a discussion about the requirements
before whipping up code.
