It's already very powerful. The 'Go To File...' uses a "fuzzy" matching
algorithm to filter the list and the results are sorted based on the
closes match to the filter string (it also considers which files you
opened in the past) so no need for wildcards.

Try just typing "forum_.css" (no wildcard). It should filter the list
as if you used a wildcard.
