Depends largely on the size of the folder tree to be searched, doesn't it? I don't think it'd be that bad- you wouldn't have to do much for each file, unless it'd fit your search criteria, then you'd have to store its path in your found files.
You'll have to keep in mind, though, that I'm very unlikely to actually use that plugin (I see no need for it now), and I'm on Windows, so I'm only arguing this point because I feel a cross-platform plugin would be better out of principle
