I'm working on a packaging system that produces statistics of the size of 
different types of files. It uses fileutils/du for this and passes the files as 
arguments. There is, however, a limit to how many arguments can be passed to a 
program, and for packages with a lot of files this is a problem. Therefore I am 
asking you to consider adding support for reading the file list on stdin. I 
made my own patch, and it worked, but as I am a newbie to C I trust you to 
produce better code and thus there is no need to send my patch to you.
