  OK this is working now.  For the moment it assumes that the list of
 files you give it are sorted appropriately.

  I agree that duplication is bad, but there are different requirements
 for a lot of these usages.

  For example I *love* the way that the search results are highlighted,
 and several people were motivated enough to suggest that this was how
 it should work.  Ditto for the display of the containing directory.

  Sorting isn't an issue for the,, and files.

  Still I hope that what I've put there is good enough for you to work 
 with, I think that it should probably take a hash of modifiers which
 may be used as necessary.  It may also be possible to make it do the
 'ignore ogg' stuff itself, and the sorting.  I'm undecided.
