Possible enhancement to find(1)

I often find myself (no pun intended!) wanting to determine which files were accessed before/since a particular timestamp. There currently exist the -{a,c}{newer,min,time} primitives, but none of these allow me to say "since today at 5 AM".

I'd like to suggest adding new primitives

	-asince "timestamp"
	-csince "timestamp"

where the timestamp argument would be converted to an actual time using parsedate(3).

Does anyone else think this is a good idea? Is there anyone who would object to adding these primitives?
