We have code for that already. For example, the file list shows an  
entry called "Projects in Journal" which retrieves all project files  
from the Journal. The problem is rather integrating that with a file  
list - because datastore entries do not have a filename, and hence no  
extension, which Squeak relies on in its current UI.

OTOH, the official way to choose a file from the Journal is calling  
the "Object Chooser", a rather new addition to the Sugar API:


I'd try to use that first ...
