It sounds like you would like to define what * means so you can type * as shorthand for a predefined glob.

Yes, exactly.

I think this is what is normally handled with history, which TextMate already supports.

I use history for find globs a lot myself, and have not found that commonly used patterns are pushed out, if that is really the case, perhaps a better solution is to make history items sticky or extend the list of kept globs.

I think it’s faster for me to just type “*” then to look for something in the history. But if there was a separate UI element that would get me this glob pattern, that would also work.
