IIRC Jiri's plugin makes *heavy* use of file patterns, so showing them
in FIF is important to giving the user an integrated experience, it
wouldn't be good if the plugin provided another FIF system.

As you say a patch is needed to allow that.  Storing them in the
existing project file was IIIRC a way of getting them to appear in the
recent list for FIF.
