I suppose this would be useful for qfile in general, but I only ever really want this for --orphans (-o).

I have to ask people to run something like: 'qfile -o /usr/lib/python*/site-packages/*/*' quite often. It'd be great to not need globs/find and to just do:

qfile -ro /usr/lib/python*

and get a list of orphaned files from that path recursively.
