Hey, anyone have an opinion about whether I should import the current
fnmatch module from GNULIB onto stable?  It would mean that CVS file
name matching would be consistently POSIX.2 compliant on all platforms.
i.e. File glob patterns containing character classes, equivalence
classes, and collation symbols would work on all platforms
(<http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007904975/functions/fnmatch.html>).

In user space, this would pretty much show up in ignore patterns and
wrapper patterns, which aren't exactly critical, and this would entail
importing the alloca module from GNULIB into stable too, so if there are
objections, I will happily restrict this consistency fix to feature.

Derek
