Ok, remember when I had a cow about how cool iswitchb is?

How is that no one mentioned ido?

Think iswitchb on crack. For files. With history. With fuzzy matching.

Imagine this:

C-x b
NSObject
# no match, I guess I don't have it open. Switch to files with ...
C-f
# Minibuffer: ~/projects/foo/NSObject
# no match, obviously, it's in some crazy directory. I'll wait a second ...
# Minibuffer: /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS2.0.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/Foundation.framework/Headers/NSObject.h
# YEP!
ENTER

That's right, it went and found a system header file for me. I only had to find the first one, then it remembered that files I want might live there. No config, no project files, no tag files, nothing. <3 <3 <3
