What about something like this:
A filename or fully qualified path and filename on the system.
If the search term begins with a <doc:tt>/</doc:tt> it will be assumed
the entire path has been given and only packages that contain this
exact path and filename will be returned.
If the search term does not start with <doc:tt>/</doc:tt> then it
should be treated as a single filename, which can be in any directory.
(be careful the lines are not too long in the markup)
