Anybody knows about some scriptable file selection utility?
Something that just starts, takes few arguments like mimetypes to include and flushes user selection to stdout?

I'm a little confused about what you're looking for (GUI, CLI script...). Is there a feature of a preexisting application that you're looking for in Arch Linux? What would you like to use it for?
Try a few of these:
zenity would do, thanks.
Another approach (if you are not focused solely on shell) would be using Python plus one of the GUI frameworks (e.g. wxwidgets). They provide similar dialogues.
