I used that output because it's "more superior" (you can generate
simple output you mention from it, but not the other way around).

But an option for choosing between different ones can always be added. I
have put this in TODO.

That ugly script in scripts/ (flog) was meant to generate different
outputs from log files. I could add an option for doing the above in it


PS: BTW (so I don't reply ten times :) yes, find.c is a simple
    implementation of find(1) which does the searching and creates
    the output. It doesn't use "ls" (nor any other external command),
    but does all by itself.
