I'm almost embarrassed to ask, but is that sarcasm?

OK, I can see that. What I can't see is how you could possibly accuse me--me!--of being sarcastic!!! (gurgle, snort; yeah, I can't even *type* that with a straight face... ;-)

Seriously, I meant "simple" as in the fewest moving parts. :-) It's all just the one 'find' command, except for sorting, which might be optional if you are importing into a spreadsheet or other tool that can filter and sort by itself.

For example, you could do CSV output then open that file as a database using:
* any spreadsheet tool
* man lookup
