Well, we already have history to the pattern list anyway (AFAIK?)... and
maybe something like fif_set_file_filter() or whatever would be just fine?

Again, I'm not really against adding it, but I feel a bit like it's only
useful when using that gproject plugin and only complicates the UI
But feel free to convince me, I'm open to argumentation ^^
