Thanks for doing the boring work.

Well glob() is in turn documented to behave according to the
rules of the shell, so maybe it's simpler to say "dirlist
entries may use shell wildcards such as @samp{*}, @samp{?},
or @code{[...]}".  (This would also make a nice NEWS entry.)

Assuming you have already applied Stepan/Clifford's patch to test
this, could you commit it along with yours and add Clifford to THANKS?
