Using the search lists in more than just require & load

Hello, It would be nice if most (better yet all) functions that accept a 
file as an argument used Allegro's search lists facility.  I realize that 
this might change the semantics of some of the functions slightly, but it 
would be extremely handy.  If this is not possible, then the next best 
thing would be a function, find-file, that would apply the search lists 
to a file and return a pathname of the first file found (or maybe a lists 
of all the matching pathnames found).  Nil can be returned if no file was 
found.  You must already have a function similar to find-file written; it 
is just a matter of documentation.
