Something like this would be good, as it is very slow now with all the extension directories. It might be worth doing something with SearchKit, as that's already keeping a database.

That said, the current implementation is still searching the whole tree for each possible extension, which needless to say, sucks. I'll take a look at fixing it.

Okay, I've committed a new version which compares every candidate for each possible extension. It's WAY faster. This should have been done a long time ago.

I think there may now be an unnecessary layer of dispatch, but I'm too tired right now to chase it through.

Maybe there should be an archive directory: /build/object_archives
The paths could be saved there into an sc archive. When a new helpfile is not found at first, it's path could be added to the archive automatically.

Give the new version a try. This may not be needed.

On my machine a search on foobar trolls through and pops up main help in a little over a second. No beachball.

I also got rid of the help.sc extension, as with Stefan's changes this is no longer necessary.
