i like it. why isnt it implemented by default? or even a find next feature?

btw, something i just noticed in itunes, if you start typing text in
the search bar, it does a search on the fly and narrows down the files
being shown to just what matches your search pattern. interesting idea
if you can impliment it without a hell of a lot of cpu usage.
