Hmph, could you (no need to hurry, though) check the previous
discussion and point at what we decided if we did reach any
conclusion to refresh our collective memory?
While I agree this is a good move in the longer term in that we get
the often-asked-for "foo/**/*.c" match and also we have one less
platform differences to worry about, I somehow have a recollection
that we discussed that there are incompatibilities in dark corners
we would want to warn users about and lay a transition plan across
some major version bump.
