The basic outline I put forward would not change, I realize.
The "hair" I'm concerned about would be in glob_match...

I'd like to see how you would write glob_match.

I went looking for something like that, and all I found is
the glob.3 man page and libc glob() function, which does
not do what we want. (and does a lot more - readdir, etc)

Maybe one could convert a glob string to a regexp and then use
regcomp();regexec();regfree() each time you call glob_match.

Is there some better way?
