Do you mean you want to point at a single directory and have it search 
any and all subdirectories, no matter how deeply nested? Well, yes, 
that would be a good use-case for os.walk, and yes, I completely missed 
it, so I withdraw my comment that Susana had re-invented the wheel.

Mea culpa, sorry Susana for any confusion I caused.
