    rev 1.10
    Rewrite to consume significantly less memory, by using find -s instead of
    find | sort.  As a bonus, this simplifies the logic considerably.  Also
    remove the bogus "overruning the args to ls" comment and the corresponding
    "-n 20" argument to xargs; the whole point with xargs is precisely that it
    knows how large the argument list can safely get.
    Note that the first run of the updated script may hypotheticall produce
    false positives due to differences between find's and sort's sorting
    algorithm.  I haven't seen this during testing, but others might.
