findFileName() && findFilePath() do not recursively search the project, they look at the HashMap.  

However the collectFiles() method is call once and will traverse the project.  But
this is done with a visitor, IResourceProxyVisitor.  This mechanism is fast since the
workspace is partly cache.

Do you see any noticable slow down ?
