[bug #56410] find -L doesn't follow symlinks outside the specified search scope

Follow-up Comment #17, bug #56410 (project findutils):
Maybe similar to what GNU coreutils' ls?
When showing file information for a symbolic link, show information for
the link references rather than the link itself. However, even with this
ls still prints the name of the link itself, not the name of the file that
link points to.
Obviously, this has to be extended for find(1) because also the
tests like -size act on the de-referenced file (if it is a resolvable file).
