Subject Re: [io] find API Was: [IO] DOSFileFilter

Interesting. I think there is some collision with FileUtils listFiles.
Using IO's current file filters you can currently specify quite complex
search expressions. If I interpret correctly FindingFilter can only do a
logical AND. On the other side FileFinder look a bit more sophisticated
than FileUtils.listFiles.

I think that Finder would have to be changed so you can pass in a
FileFilter instead of the options map. That way we could combine both
functionalities. It's probably important to keep the relatively simple
FileUtils.listFiles, but it could use the Finder internally.
