Yes, Python.  I'm being forced off Perl.

Shortest way to find the first file in a directory tree.

Bonus points for finding a file of a specific mime type.  Everything
I've tried uses os.walk or is like this:

    for f in os.listdir(directory):
        if f.endswith(".txt"):
            winner = f

(the above of course only deals with one directory level)
