Finding Nodes in the Graph

One of the most annoying things with large Dynamo Graphs is to find a specific node given some properties, like the name for example, and have Dynamo to jump right on top of that node.
This video demonstrates a concept I've been working on using the Dynamo API.
It works using the name of Nodes, Notes and Groups.
The weird thing I couldn't explain is why after the execution one has to click on Zoom Out to center the node... but it's definitely better than nothing!

This also implies the usage of some best practices when creating the graph, renaming is the oldest trick that still makes the difference.
