1. Bookmarks - to directories, for example.  And to Emacs desktops
   (snapshots recording buffers, windows, variables, etc.).

   See Bookmark+ for the latter, and for the former too if you want

2. `locate-file'.  (Or with Icicles, `icicle-locate' (if you have an OS
   `locate' command) or `icicle-locate-file'.)
