It's not Xubuntu's developers business: Yes, You're right - I've always guessed it. I'm going to try to reach some guys at Xfce or at Xubuntu who knows them and can help. It will be a bit hard, cause Xfce Desktop team and Thunar developers are not the same (I'm not sure) and my proposal affects both of them.
To Michele Mor:
Michele, if You click on 'Type' in the header of Thunar, it lists the files by type OR if You select Edit>Select by pattern and insert *.mp3 into the input field, Thunar will select all the mp3s automatically. I do not think Windows or MacOS can do more for You.
Otherwise we must see to integrate Catfish into Thunar is not a 5 minutes work (furthermore Joshua wrote Thunar needs to be kept fairly lightweight and I agree with him), so finally I've changed my mind and therefore I suggest keep Catfish standalone, move forward with small steps, do some things for let the search function is more easy to find for beginners also.

hey guys & gals,
xubuntu uses the open source thunar file manager, and catfish file
search app, but xubuntu team is not the developer of either.
I believe such a thunar feature request would have to go through the
applications actual development team: http://thunar.xfce.org/
