Yes, I think this would be very useful. While pick is pretty fast,
my hard disc unforunatly isn't...

I often use pick to look for peoples e-mail addresses and don't want
to search a whole folder just for that. I often end up using
pick last:n - but guessing n might go wrong.

So, that's a +1 from me for the functionality, but I didn't look
at the patch.
