This topic should be discussed (at least until there is a concrete proposal)
on the Usenet newgroup comp.lang.python (a.k.a. python-list at python.org).  It
would be helpful if you presented a concrete example.  As stated though
there is no unique file that matches a given basename.  You might also want
to check out the glob module to see if it addresses your needs.
