There is no specification in Common Lisp that I'm aware of that
gives you a pathname metacharacter (or substring) for "current directory",
because it's a pretty vague and easily-broken concept.
I don't know about Search files, but there's several lispy ways
to get the "current folder". It looks to me like ccl::choose-file-ddir
gets you the default directory for the "choose file" dialogs.
