Sounds nice!

I would also like to point out that searching for filenames is somewhat
similar to searching for function names. That is, the buffer is parsed
and you search for semantic entities of some kind.

It so happens that Cedet, which is slated for inclusion, contains a tool
called Senator which does this.
