Yes it would.

In that case it'd look like:

function(obj, array, property, match) {
    var test = (typeof match.test == "function");
    var found = OpenLayers.Array.filter(obj[array], function(item) {
        return item[property] == match || (test && match.test(item[property]));
    return found;

Given that Map.getBy is an API method it should remain. However it
could rely on the getBy function defined in Util.js:

getBy: function(array, property, match) {
    return OpenLayers.Util.getBy(this, array, property, match)

I'm +1 on adding a  getStrategyByClass method to the Layer.Vector
class and on adding a GetBy function to Util.js.

Thanks Bart,
