Elements : adding a text search within folder paths.

PSE11 introduced the dual folder mode in which you can see the name of the last level subfolder in alphanumerical order (for the catalogued files only). I find it very useful to find a given folder name or duplicated folder names. That enables smooth migration from a folder based organization to a keyword one.
The text search works on keywords, file names, captions etc.
Would it be possible to have a text search to find a substring of the 'filepath_search_index' field of the database ?
That would enable finding a sub-folder by its name, even if it's not the last level.
For many users, those intermediate level subfolders have significant names. You could find them with the 'find' options of Windows.
