It might be worth brainstorming if there’s ways to do this that are both
intuitive and don’t require more options. As a command line user, I really
value my keystrokes.
One idea would be to use a syntax that matches that of the ‘-name’ option
to the standard ‘find’ utility. This way filename pattern matching would
work in a way familiar to almost everyone, no sb api options would need to
