Sorry, I may be missing context as I've ignored this thread until now, 
but is this in terms of the interaction?  Or the code behind the filters 
/after/ the file has been selected and the 'open' button has been 
pressed?  If it's to do with the dialog and user interaction (i.e. 
before pressing the open button), I'll mention that I use the filters 
regularly, to weed out a large portion of the files in a directory, 
usually when I can't instantly think of the file name I want to open.
