[feature] Using an index for restic find

I’ve not used restic find much, but it appears to be very slow, searching all the repos. It takes about 2 minutes to make a search in my repo. It’s painful when trying to find something specific and tweaking the pattern match as I go along.

Has there been any thoughts to making an index to speed up this process ?

I believe it could be improved when restic updates its repo format, specifically if tree blobs are separated from data blobs.

Ideas were discussed here.
