IMHO "image2-specific @code{-pattern_type glob} option" is more
understandable for end users.

Not related to this patch: 

  Also I conclude that codec-private, private codec, or
private <other component> option is a misnomer! If it were
private according to the common meaning of private in the
programming/software development/computer science/informatik
field then it would be a violation of the principle to
access those options from outside of the module itself.
