script allows you to specify a space separated list of shell globs and
have nautilus display only the matching files in the current directory.
I've allowed a list so you can do things like filter the displayed files for '*.jpg *.jpeg *.png' etc...
The script works by taking advantage of the fact that if you set
nautilus to not display hidden files then it will also parse a file
called .hidden and not display entries in it either. So, if you are
already using the .hidden file I wouldn't recommend using this script as
it will delete it when * is given as a filter (or when the filter
matches all non-hidden files for that matter). One annoying thing is
that you have to hit ctrl-r to refresh after running the script.
