Follow-up Comment #2, bug #64253 (project findutils):

I started working on -[i]magic/-[i]mime.

Obviously, this potentially pulls in - depending on the build configuration
of libmagic - additional dependencies to libzstd, liblzma, libbz2, and libz.
As find(1) is used in many bootstrapping scenarios, this might mean that
those environments may need/want to build two flavors of findutils:
a) one small one without libmagic for the bootstrapping part, and
b) a larger one with libmagic for the final system.
At least the downstream maintainer has a choice ...
