	Ho hum; that starts to do quite some violence to the platform-specific
file-selector dialogs; doing interactive changes to the filter logic
while the user types is likely to make the behaviour of these things
even worse than it is now ;-)

	So - in general, I'd rather prefer to see that feature in the platform
file-selectors (personally), and perhaps (if anyone at all uses it), in
the built-in LO selector.

	Nice feature idea though; be great to see it Gtk+, KDE etc.
