--literal-pathspecs and its equivalent environment variable are
probably used for scripting. In that setting, pathspec magic may be
unwanted. Disabling globbing in individual pathspec can be done via
:(literal) magic.

 --literal-pathspecs::
-       Treat pathspecs literally, rather than as glob patterns. This is
-       equivalent to setting the `GIT_LITERAL_PATHSPECS` environment
+       Treat pathspecs literally (i.e. no globbing, no pathspec magic).
+       This is equivalent to setting the `GIT_LITERAL_PATHSPECS` environment
        variable to `1`.
