RFD: Path wildcards in Goto File

My projects tend to have a lot of files that have the same file name (i.e. index.jhtml, indexBody.jhtml, Initial.properties). I think it would be nice to have a feature where I could specify part of the path in the Goto File popup. Something like *recipe/Initial.properties* where anything before the path separator would be pattern-matched against the path and everything after the path would be pattern-matched against the file.

Anybody else think this would be useful?

This would be great for those of use working with web apps and moderately
useful - at least - for others.
