Is there any possibility of rethinking the UI of finder.el?  It's
very... episodic.

The BBDB UI, for instance, does a great job filtering and displaying a
few choices from a large list.  The Gnus summary/article buffers are
another good UI example, with the limiting commands.  package.el can
list hundreds of packages concisely.
