We need a time machine to publish this warning in 1994, before anyone used the glob in his program.

Pathlib has an advantage in this.

The following have been discussed already:

 - deprecate the 'glob' module, moving its functionality to shutil
 - "starglob" or "use_recursive" option
 - have a separate "rglob" or "tree" function do this for you

And more at https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Amail.python.org+recursive+glob

The patch has been discussed to death already. Not to say that it's too late to speak your mind, but I think if it passes the proper tests and review - it should go in.
