use panda's default model paths for other files?

is it possible to use panda’s default model files, for example for audio files, video files, game save files, dialogue text files, etc.

I’m thinking there might be a function which accepts a string (file name) and returns a string which is the first matching file location in the default model paths.

filename = getModelPath().findFile('basename')

Also note that most assets loaded via high-level Panda calls, including audio files, video (texture) files, font files, etc., automatically search the model-path. Strictly speaking, it should probably be called the resource-path or asset-path, but it is called the model-path.
