I thought about this already, and some of it is already implemented,
mainly a tab system where each tab has an independent cursor, and macros
like %F which give you the currently selected file of the next tab.
Implementing a split view would be a matter of writing another class
like "BrowserView" named "SplitView" and somehow swapping those when you
swap modes.  Doesn't sound too hard, maybe I give it a try before
1.6.0, but only if you promise to test it well ;)

I've already seen some implementations of as-you-type filter commands.
You can easily make your own by writing this into your

from ranger.config.commands import *
class filter(filter):
  quick = filter.execute

It lacks libcolumbus support though :S

If you like it, I can make this the default behaviour.
