  I don't know either why you missed the end of the discussion :(
  I asked you explicitly about your opinion in the part of the quote
you just skipped... Would you have said that more than 3 months ago
then I probably would have implemented the "request-globbing-explicitly"
way I suggested before.

  Anyway we cannot change the past, so we need to agree on how to
proceed. If we leave it as it is now, Stefano can push his docs
patch and I can submit a patch to print a warning on top of that.

  If we decide to change the way to access globbing support we need
to properly agree on the facts this time, propose a patch and think
on how to do the transition (how to inform users etc.).
