Yeah, let's bring REGEXPs into the firmware :-)

Of course, we can try this (maybe in addition to), but the battle is won
with a quick and really helpful (horizontal) scrolling. F.e. 10 chars
every second instead of one char every quarter second (speaking of the
archos firmware, not playing with rockbox yet).

Or we could introduce a self-compressing directory listing: If you have
something like this:

aaa - t1.mp3
aaa - t2.mp3
aaa - t3.mp3
aaa - t4.mp3
bbb - b1.mp3
bbb - b2.mp3
bbb - b3.mp3

We could show it as:

>aaa (remaining on top of the display)
