Mac::Files has the New and Improved version.

    use Mac::Files;
    $sf = FindFolder(kOnSystemDisk, typeSystemFolder);

But this only works with a handful (well, in Mac OS 8, a big handful) of
cases for a generic "find file x", whatever "x" is.

If Sherlock had better scripting capabilities, you could use it to do
searching, too.
