The ⌘T filtering uses display names which turns out to be a major performance bottleneck since getting the display name requires accessing the file system several times (and the OS seems to not cache it) — I may drop using display names and/or do my own caching of these (display names allow localized file names, turns ‘:’ into ‘/’, hide extensions, a.s.o.).

A priority is observed, not manufactured or assigned :)
