One word: awesome.  :-)

I have a minor issue: I use ‘ido’ and ‘ido-find-file’ insist on browsing
the entire /gnu/store when I do C-x C-f with a store file name at point
(except if the file name denotes a directory.)  So to open a .drv file,
I have to work around that.

How do people handle this?

Thank you!
