Interesting feature.  Thanks for the patch.  I don't have time to
look at this in detail for some weeks, but after a quick look: why
separately look for matches before and after the cursor position?
Why not run through the entire file from top to bottom?  That is:
from 'fileage' to 'filebot'.  Or do you wish to have the closer
matches to take precedence?

Some details: please use a blank line between functions, and give
each function an introductory comment.  Always use a space after
'if' and 'for' and comma.  And elide check_if_exceeds().
