In gproject I have three kinds of patterns - header file patterns,
source file patterns and others file patterns (see the original
announcement email to see what I use them for). For search I want to
use all of these patterns. Of course it would be possible for the user
to manually copy and paste all of these patterns to another edit box,
but this is not really nice from the user perspective. So I'd like to
be able to define the patterns used for search from within gproject.
