Um, I think they're about the same in the level of convenience for us to be able to disable either: we can add a global var which would affect whether specs are interpreted literally.

If anything, approach #1 is slightly easier if we wanted to support opting out of literal-quoting the specs at the level of VC backend actions: certain action implementations can simply avoid calling the proposed functions (like vc-git--literal-pathspec). But then, I'm not sure that we want this capability at exactly that abstraction level.
