	Really cool!. About the search stuff on the filechooser, I was talking
with someone about it, and we realized that, for files, context is
really important. Thing about searching a picture of "Lucas" typying
"lucas" and presenting results as normal files in the file view. It
would ne like:
  * Lucas.jpg
  * 1002.jpg
  * IMG234.jpg

But maybe the user would like to know their context:
  * /media/pictures/Lucas - Ribiera Concert/1002.jpg
  * /media/pictures/partys/Fiesta en casa de Lucas/Lucas.jpg
  * /home/fer/Desktop/crazy lucas/IMG234.jpg

so that's because I used clarkbw Find UI [1] in my quick-and-dirty-only-
for-me GtkFileChooser search hack [2]

	So I don't know if gtk_file_chooser_set_extra_widget_for_extension() is
flexible enough for adding the widget in the right place (as seen in [3]
it is over the file list for the open dialog)
