In that case, you are asking for a new feature. Up to now, the only
documentation (besides a comment in the source) of this "takes a list"

Firstly, note the documentation says:

  A `.' is *not* automatically prepended to the string entered.

Secondly, what if someone wants to mark extensions with spaces, eg files
named "*.my extension"?
