The new "Changed files" scope is quite spiffy, and it reminded me of an idea I had a while ago but never had the need for. Is there any way in the current API to create a custom scope whose semantics is defined by the plugin. For instance, the Hibero people might want to create a custom scope for "All Hibernate configuration files". Users could then search/inspect/calculate metrics/show dependencies in just the Hibernate config files, a fairly common use case.
I might have a need for this sort of functionality soon, but don't seem to find it in the OpenAPI. Should I submit a request?
