Querying the file system



What are the best practices in EPiServer 7 for programatically querying the virtual path provider/file system/document repository? What I want to do is to simply list all files in a certain folder or perhaps search for files with a certain name or type. Do we have some new cool services/helper classes to inject and utilize in EPiServer 7? Or can I use the SearchService somehow? 

Last time I worked with this I extended the FileSystemDataSource class and built my own kind of "file repository". But that solution was rather bulky and not-so-good-looking. Any suggestions on how to proceed and building this?

(Sorry if I mixed up the terminology - havn't worked with this in some years).
