Right, that was a first item in TODO list for my original patch :)
I have an improved version to filter out folders w/o matched content.
It implements quite tricky algorithm with caching of filtered sub-folders
and looks quite ugly for me.
Anyway,  review request is coming soon.

I have more ideas for filter:
- special patterns like '\t' for targets
- start pattern with '!' to do hide matched content, for example
'*.cpp !moc*.cpp' - shows all cpp but hides generated MOC files.
- Pattern history in drop-down-list.

Any blames/comments/suggestions for ideas?
