Recursive File-Hunting

:find {file} find a file anywhere under your current path & edit it. It supports tab-completion and wildcards, so :find SomeCl<tab> and :find *Class<tab> will both start the hunt for SomeClass.

You can define a list of file extensions to include/exclude & prioritise (ignore .py files, pick .less files before .css files, etc.)

See :help find and :help path for more.
