Directory scanner

Propose a directory scanner....scans a directory and returns a list of files of a particular type, say audio, movies, images ... I have generally used this to create randomness in compositions, saves hard coding content, or simply stepping tough a number of digital assets. Similar to the "Directory Scanner" patch in qc. "This patch scans a directory at a given path, possibly recursively, and build a list of the image, movie or composition files it contains. The directory path is considered absolute if starting with '/', relative to the current user directory if starting with '~', or otherwise relative to the location of the Quartz composition file if available."

Implemented in Vuo version: 

Load structured data (XML, JSON, CSV, TXT) from files or network (HTTP, HTTPS)

A node for loading structured data from file, URL, etc.

Imports: XML, JSON, CSV, TXT, etc. for parsing Filters: ability to filter structure data streams Multi dimensional: ability to have nested data (not just 1-dimensional lists)

Could go as far as ability to connect to DB's but that's probably pushing the complexity of this feature.
