I used FuzzyFinder for a long time but it is more or less dead and has some pretty major bugs. ctrlp has handily replaced it.

The only problem is that if I want to type an abbreviation in ctrlp (lib: for example) and have it exclusively search in a dir (or set of dirs) I must switch to regex mode, so that in my example lib: expands to ^lib/. The best solution, in my mind, would be a way to use a regex as a filter, but still use the same FuzzyFind interface. This would actually allow one to solve #362, as it could (in kindav a gross way) be implemented with a regex filter.

What do you think?
