As I mentioned in my previous email, search file with absolute file
works, but we wanted something like wild card search to get a group of
packages. As I understood, this will require proper backend supports.
I would like to see if all backends find it useful to support this
feature which is becoming quite crucial for the rise-of-plugins.
