I was thinking of using "find ... -ls" instead of "find ... -print0
| xargs -0 ls ...", because the output from "find -ls" always has
consistent horizontal space. However, the the output from "find -ls"
has some extra columns (easy to remove via sed), and a different date
format (similar to "ls -l", different from "ls -lT").
