Follow-up Comment #1, bug #22467 (project findutils):

See also bug#19374.   The plan is to replace the current shell script with a
C program.  Leslie Polzer has already written this.   His code has yet to be
merged but it is available at

The C program will probably accept multiple --prunepaths options, allowing us
(probably) to deprecate the use of the space character within the option
argument as a separator.    It may be necessary to maintain backward
compatibility somehow by using a new option with the imporved semantics,
instead of changing the behaviour of the existing one.
